Roughly 57 cases of mumps occurred in the Brooklyn NY area, beginning in August.

What is most important to note is that 75% of those who got mumps WERE vaccinated.

Most of my friends know that Im anti-vaccine, but when you do have your child vaccinated….shouldnt you have protection against diseases?
