Free mumps vaccine offered after two Spokane County cases confirmed

The Spokane Regional Health District will host a free mumps vaccination clinic Wednesday at Rogers High School, 1622 E. Wellesley Ave.

The clinic comes after the health district confirmed this week that two people in Spokane County have been diagnosed with the mumps. Both had been vaccinated, but it’s still possible for a vaccinated person to become ill, the heath district said. The symptoms of the illness are usually milder in those who have been vaccinated.

People who receive two doses of the MMR vaccine are about nine times less likely to get the mumps than unvaccinated people, the health district said.

People of all ages will be provided a free MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine from 9 a.m. to noon and from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Parents of children ages 2-18 are asked to bring their child’s vaccination records. Juice and snacks will be provided.
