Mumps quote:

Mumps - so it's in the news, should not have to be but it is. I've had the mumps but I am an early 60's baby so it is to be expected. None of my kids have had mumps and shouldn't ever have to worry about having the mumps in the future as well. I don't remember anything of the mumps but from reading articles, it was most likely quite an unpleasant experience.

That said, I'm curious as to how many on beyond have had the mumps in the recent past few years up to now or their kids have had the mumps? Now I know it's asking a lot but I would hope this thread can remain focused on the single question above.

CBE sent out a notification to parents to warn them out the outbreak. Of course I think it will only be a problem for the anti-vaxers.

Yeah, if you have been vaccinated, is that vaccine pretty effective? We vaccinate the shit out of our family, but I know some are more effective than others.

How long is the vaccine effective for? Doesn't mumps need boosters? I got a booster when my kid got immunized. Fucking shoulder hurt for a week. haha.

Why shouldn't they have to be concerned with Mumps?

The vaccine is not 100% efective

MMR vaccine is very safe and effective. The mumps component of the MMR vaccine is about 88% (range: 66-95%) effective when a person gets two doses; one dose is about 78% (range: 49%−92%) effective.

There was an "outbreak" back in 2007/2008 and I, along with 50% of my Junior hockey team contracted it. I was foolish enough to go into work in the early stages, before I was diagnosed, a co-worker of mine also contracted it after coming in contact with me.

I had my shots when I was a kid, but still contracted it.

You only need 2 shots, but most people born before 1996 only got one as a kid.

I'm 90% sure I got a second shot in high school, after the 2 shots became standard... at least that's when I became autistic

I was also one of the people that contracted it in the 2007 outbreak.... after getting vaccinated.

Was not so happy about getting pseudo-quarantined in my dorm room, and the virus itself was even less fun.

Had one round of shots in grade 2, and then another at the university (trying to mitigate the risk of outbreak).

Had mumps when i was 7-8. Pretty much everyone in my extended family ended up with it. I had gotten the one shot when I was a kid. Unpleasant indeed.

Honestly this should not happen in modern society, its true that vaccines are not 100% effective, and some require boosters over time (such as HEP B and Tetanus). But by and large this outbreak is contributed by anti vaxxer stupidity.

Vaccines are effective due to "herd immunity". The effective rates quoted are on a person by person basis. Factoring in the odds of other people getting sick, and you are right, by and large, if people are vaccinated, these things shouldn't happen.

It's true. It's the anti-vaccine idiots that have led to a lot of this. In some ways they are doing us a favor as it's leading to population control of the idiots in society but I feel for their unvaccinated children who weren't given the choice and may have to live with the consequences of their parents poor decision makin.
