Mumps Outbreaks At Several Colleges In The U-S

Outbreaks of mumps are being reported at college campuses in several states, including Kansas, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and more.

Many of the victims have had their vaccinations, but Doctor Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says a vaccine is not a iron clad guarantee you won't get the disease, but  it's 88 percent effective.

All this comes as the state of Texas is warning the worst outbreak of mumps in two decades, with 221 cases reported so far.
