Important Information on Mumps

Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) is investigating five new cases of mumps every day, as the number of notifications of the disease continues to rise.

The best way to protect against mumps is to be vaccinated with two doses of the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine. Contact your doctor if you are unsure if you have been vaccinated, or if you need to catch-up with a second dose.  MMR vaccination is free for those who have not received two doses of the MMR vaccine.

The virus spreads from coughing, sneezing, or talking or by touching objects infected by saliva or mucous such as a used tissue or toys. Prevent mumps spreading by washing hands, covering your cough and sneeze, stay home if you’re sick, don’t share cups, utensils, etc and be up to date on your MMR vaccine

Early symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite. The salivary glands on one or both sides of the face, cheeks or jaw may become swollen and sore after two days. 

Should your child present any of these symptoms, we recommend that you consult your family healthcare provider.
