On Tuesday, a city health department spokesman, Jose Rodriguez, said that mumps cases at Ohio State University have grown to 28 cases. Rodriguez said all but one of those infected had received at least one dose of the mumps vaccine.
Those infected include 23 students and a staff member at the university in Columbus, Ohio, and four other people with connections to students or community.
A CDC expert on mumps and other communicable diseases, Dr. Gregory Wallace, said people who are vaccinated may still get the mumps.
According to a 2012 study in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), an outbreak of mumps in the United States between 2009 and 2010 occurred mostly in children who had been vaccinated.
