Single Mumps VaccineThe single mumps vaccine has not been available in the UK for several years. In fact there is no satisfactory (safe and effective) mumps vaccine available anywhere in the world. Unfortunately there is no sign of this changing in the near future. We will keep you updated of any change in the situation.
However Dr Halvorsen, BabyJabs’ medical director, feels that mumps is usually a mild and harmless illness and that vaccination is not essential.
