Columbus Public Health (CPH) and Franklin County Public Health continue to investigate a growing number of mumps cases in our community, and is encouraging individuals at highest risk of mumps – those who have not received any doses of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and those who have received only 1 dose of MMR – to get vaccinated. To protect yourself and your loved ones from mumps make sure you have received two doses of the MMR vaccine.

As of this afternoon at 2:30 pm, 63 mumps cases have been reported in Franklin County. To date, 45 cases have been linked to the university outbreak. Please see the chart below for further details:
