Mumps

Updated: September 2020.

Important information in relation to Mumps Vaccination

Please be aware that there was an outbreak of Mumps in Mary Immaculate College during the academic year 2019/20.

The following advice is particularly relevant to students who have a placement component, in a setting where children are present, associated with their chosen programme of study.

It is advisable that all incoming students check their vaccination records to ensure that they have received two MMR vaccines.  If it emerges that you have only received one vaccination or no vaccination, you are advised to attend your GP and receive a booster shot prior to attending Mary Immaculate College.  If you have no record of having this vaccination it is safe to administer another dose of MMR.  If your own doctor cannot facilitate this, you are advised to contact Ashdown Centre, Courtbrack Ave, South Circular Road, Limerick V94 H9KR, and a booster shot will be arranged for you. 

The cost of the MMR vaccine is covered by the Health Service Executive (HSE).  If you attend the Ashdown Medical Centre in Limerick for this booster/vaccination, the only cost incurred by you will be €30.  Please note that International students, are not covered by the HSE and the cost is approximately €60.

The College would very much appreciate you attending to this important matter.

If you suspect you may have contracted mumps

If you suspect you may have mumps you should not attend college, your placement or MIC’s Medical Centre until all signs and symptoms have cleared and your temperature is back to normal. Phone your own GP or phone the MIC Medical Centre 061 204343 for advice for advice. 

Please notify your placement provider if you are on placement and email the Education Office at if you are absent due to mumps educationoffice@mic.ul.ie

Mumps infection may cause a fever, headache and swelling or tenderness of one or more of the salivary glands in the cheeks, in front of and below the ear or at the jawline. More information is available at the HSE website at this link.

Any member of staff with mumps should also follow the HSE guidance and contact your GP for advice and notify your Line Manager and Human Resources of your absence.
