Vaccine Not Fail-Safe in Ongoing Mumps Outbreak
Date:2/11/2010

CDC says more than 1,500 cases have been reported in New York, New Jersey,,

THURSDAY, Feb. 11 (HealthDay News) -- In a recent mumps outbreak occurring in the eastern United States, even some of those who were vaccinated against the infectious illness got sick, health officials report.

Mumps is a self-limiting disease with no specific treatment. It is best treated with bed rest and over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen to reduce fever, according to the CDC.

"The outbreak has been ongoing since the end of June," said study co-author and CDC epidemiologist Kathleen Gallagher. "Ninety-seven percent of cases are among this Jewish community."

The outbreak has probably been confined to this group because they have less contact with the wider community, Gallagher noted.

She said the outbreak started in a summer boy's camp. "The original [patient] case had traveled to Great Britain, where they are having, and have been having, an ongoing outbreak of mumps for a while n
