Saving Minutes -
Special Needs Registry now available
Want to know what you can do to protect yourself against sicknesses like the mumps?

Remember these 4 tips:

1) Get vaccinated
2) Wash your hands
3) Stay home if you're sick
4) Cover your cough.

Are you up-to-date on your MMR vaccine, an immunization that helps protect against measles, mumps and rubella? If not, talk to your health care provider and get vaccinated.

Think you may already be sick with the mumps?
Contact your health care provider, and be sure to stay home, cover your cough and wash your hands to help prevent spreading the infection.

For more information, visit:
http://www.cdc.gov/mumps/

Up-to-date with MMR - What does that mean?
Children receive the first dose of MMR (the mumps-containing vaccine) at 12-15 months and the second dose at 4-6 years.

People born between 1958 and 1985 may have only received one dose. Check with your healthcare provider to get your record. http://www.cdc.gov/mumps/vaccination.html
