Mumps is back! Four out of five people are not fully protected against mumps. Queen's University in conjunction with the KFL and A Health Unit present two mumps catch-up immunization clinics:

  • Thursday, Feb. 5 from 11 am to 2 pm in the John Orr Room of the John Deutsch University Centre (JDUC) and from 4 to 8 pm in the Victoria Hall, main common area.
  • A second clinic will take place Wednesday, March 4 from 11 am to 2 pm in the John Orr Room, JDUC.

Bring your Health Card to the clinic with you.

Mumps is very contagious and can cause serious complications in young adults. The age group at risk, are those born between 1970 through to 1991, or ages 18 to 39 years. Catch it and you'll spend nine days in isolation, among other very serious complications.
