Mumps cases hit decade high in England
People are urged to get two doses of the MMR vaccine to maximise protection against the viral illness.
Why do outbreaks happen?Cases of mumps consistently outnumber measles and rubella every year.Teenagers and young adults in colleges and universities are now the ones who tend to be affected - for several reasons.Many of the 2019 cases were born in the late 1990s and early 2000s and missed out on the MMR vaccine when they were children.
Research by a disgraced UK doctor falsely linking the vaccine to autismundoubtedly had an impact on uptake.Current students may also be too old to have been immunised or offered the MMR, or may only have had one dose of the vaccine and thus not be fully protected.
It is also possible the vaccine's protection against mumps may have worn off.Despite the recent rise in cases, mumps hasn't just reappeared.Before the MMR vaccine, eight out of 10 people developed it and most of them were children of school age.
At that time, there were five deaths a year from mumps, mainly due to encephalitis or swelling of the brain.The illness then became relatively rare before returning in the 2000s. Read more: BBC News (UK) »

The next storm to hit Britain won't be going away for years it's the JohnsonShiteStorm Poor vaccine response in people + a new strain circulating.
Lazy parenting. Hope all these kids are directly blaming their parents. How many of them had DM reading parents...the newspaper that believed the discredited doctor who disagreed with the MMR vaccine back in the day? If only there was an injection people could have when they are young to prevent it 🤔 My daughter had every vaccine going but still caught mumps. This was in the eighties before we had the MMR combined vaccine.
Mumps related orchitis. Google it. And why not do what you gotta do to prevent having this preventable illness?! It's the Corona Soprano Virus. Happens at the Church before the choir starts. If only some medical way of preventing this could be found. Ah well, we can dream. Perhaps someday... MUMPS - Breaking News - Another new phenomenon that the world hasn’t coped with since forever. Major symptoms, distorted selfies and the inability, albeit temporary, to pout to an accepted standard on social media, other than to gain sympathy. 🙄🙄🙄
We had almost eradicated Mumps, Measles and Rubella until the self righteous got involved, now all 3 are back. I am guessing all those parents who didn’t give their kids the MMR vaccination when it came out are cool with not becoming grandparents. Might want ask why? VaccinesWork VaccinesSaveLives My son got this in Jan! He had all his jabs & boosters on time!
the jabs are there, alas you can lead a horse to water but cannot make it drink. grow up people. Especially males. Didn't realise the goal of anti-vaxxers is just to make their kids look like Peter Griffin... fully on board with this now This is why it is immoral not to vaccinate and protect your children. My sister in law chose not to vaccinate and her son got serious mumps aged 17. Had to be hospitalised. We wait to see if his fertility is affected.
Haha! But the vaccine does not work! Why would you inject yourself some extra poison just for the sake of it! No one dies of mumps. If only their parents had thought to vaccinate eh? Panchod21 remember when you had this! I presume his willy also falls off or is it just the balls? Not a medical expert but had been told about mumps stops you having kids so ........
Also lads mumps can affect fertility As someone who relys on the herd immunity this is very worrying! I have suppressed immune system due to my kidney transplant!! Because of that doctor who got paid by single vaccine companies to say it was linked to autism-no truth in it at all 🤦🏻♀️putting 100s of children at risk
perinp87 mumps Remember the MMR nonsense from the snowflakes. one of the Ms stands for mumps. Sufferers need to have a candid chat speak with their parents. ‘But in rare cases, there can be serious complications, such as inflammation of the testicles in males, meningitis and deafness’. As opposed to testicles in females? 🤷🏼♂️
The Conservatives have been in power for 10 years, they need to take responsibility for this increase, failing this great country once again. BorisJohnson time to go it's a car crash once again! Sure I heard MMR somewhere..... just lose wait ✍️ I look like the photo on the right every for many years, I must have permanent mumps
Vaccinate your kids !! DrGrumble BALTHAZAR If only we had some sort of vaccine DocBastard VaccinesWork Among the complications of Mumps there include mastitis and Orchitis however in Homoeopathy there is also a quick and complete solution of Mumps and associated complaints Literally the sins of the fathers [and mothers] being visited on the children.
Female homicide victims in England and Wales up 10% in yearOfficial figures show there were 671 victims of homicide, 429 male and 241 female, in 2018-19 Still not caught up to men. I won't be happy until it's 50/50. I'm a true feminist. Equality Some cultures are better than others Males higher than females' ones. That is surprising. Sad for all involved ones, family members, friends.
