Confirmed Mumps Case in Maine

Maine CDC is investigating a confirmed case of mumps in an unvaccinated student in York County. Maine CDC is working closely with the school to identify contacts and provide recommendations for control. The intent of this HAN is to remind providers to test patients with clinically compatible symptoms for mumps, encourage vaccination, and alert others to the presence of mumps in Maine. Schools should review student vaccination records as unvaccinated students in schools may be excluded if Maine CDC identifies further cases in other locations.
