Over 4,800 students, staff take advantage of free mumps vaccines at Temple University

Temple University hosted another free clinic Friday as they continue to combat a recent mumps outbreak.

The university held their first clinic on Wednesday, when health officials say they administered more than 2,200 MMR booster shots to students and staff.

On Friday, Temple vaccinated 2,534 more students, faculty and staff, bringing the grand total of vaccinations to 4,819.

Since the virus has a two-week incubation period, officials still expect there to be another wave of mumps even after the vaccination clinics.

The health department says there are 108 total mumps cases at Temple. 18 of those cases have been confirmed.
