Did Schooling Method Spread Mumps in Orthodox Jewish Communities?
Date:10/31/2012

Barskey explained that Orthodox Jewish people tend to cluster geographically and socially. Boys spend a great deal of time in religious schools called yeshivas. They may spend up to 15 hours a day in school, he said. And, they study with a partner, working closely together for many hours at a time, face to face, possibly having animated discussions. These partners work at a table with other groups of partners, and they may switch partners during the day. Girls attend conventional schools.

However, Orthodox Jews don't live in isolation; they routinely interact with people who are not Orthodox Jews, he said. Yet, Orthodox Jewish people accounted for 97 percent of the infections, according to the study. Barskey said this finding strongly suggests that it's something that happens in the Orthodox Jewish communities that may make them more susceptible, and experts suspect it's the intense one-on-one contact that occurs in Orthodox Jewish schooling for boys.

"This kind of schooling represents close, prolonged contact where the students can be bombarded with large amounts of the virus. We believe it's this contact that overwhelmed the vaccine," Barskey said.

The good news is that those who were vaccinated had a less severe course of the disease than normal. Although mumps in children is generally mild, some kids develop serious problems, including deafness. In rare cases, children die.

Currently, the outbreaks have been contained. But, Barskey said this report shows that "it's important to maintain high vaccine coverage. The lack of spread outside the Orthodox Jewish community shows that the two-dose schedule in the U.S. is sufficient for mumps control." He added that there are no additional specific recommendations for the Orthodox Jewish community at this point.

An expert on vaccines noted parallels to other mumps outbreaks.

"These outbreaks are similar to what we saw on college campuses where you have crowding. Vaccines are
