MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – A second case of mumps has been reported at Kansas State University.
The university said in a release Thursday that both students with confirmed cases of the mumps live off campus. The university says it’s working to contact people who may have had close contact with the infected students.
The university says it’s asking students to review their vaccination records to see if they have had two measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccinations.
Students are also being advised to contact a medical provider if they experience mumps symptoms, which include fever, headache and swollen salivary glands under the ears.
