Can You Get Mumps If Vaccinated?

Q:
Can you get mumps if vaccinated?

A:
Unfortunately, you can.

People who have received two doses of the MMR vaccine are about nine times less likely to get mumps than unvaccinated people who have the same exposure to mumps virus.

Some vaccinated people can still get mumps, especially if they have prolonged, close contact with someone who has the disease. If a vaccinated person does get mumps, they will likely have less severe illness than an unvaccinated person.

To learn more you should go to a medical professional.
