Vaccines And Infectious Diseases A mumps outbreak at the Ohio State University has affected some 82 people. There was a similar outbreak at Fordham University in New York City, and a measles outbreak among school kids there too. California officials are stumped by an outbreak of polio-like symptoms. Haven't all these diseases been eradicated by vaccinations? How come some students who received the MMR vaccine got sick anyway?


Health, Be Well
