About sixty-seven out of 99 counties have witnessed at least one case of mumps. The three counties hit hardest by mumps are Dubuque (357), Johnson (140, and Black Hawk (102).

It has collected a wide variety of data such confirmed vaccination status on 429 cases, onset date for 975 cases and age at onset for 959 cases. A single dose of vaccine is enough to prevent 80 % of the disease while a booster dose offers about 95% protection against the disease. The state of Iowa issued a public health bulletin informing the risk of participants and spectators in various mass gatherings and events for contracting mumps. According to the state of Iowa those younger than 50 who have received two doses of mumps vaccine and those older than 49 who have received one dose of vaccine are viewed as fully vaccinated.
