The mumps vaccine clinic was offered to students after a confirmed case of mumps on campus.

University officials teamed up with the city of Milwaukee Health Department to provide the mumps vaccine.

After the mumps case was confirmed on campus, officials with the school's health center followed up with those who may have had close contact with the student affected.

There has been an increase in mumps cases across the state, health officials say.

"In the state, there's been 38 cases, which is a little unusual. We have an outbreak occurring in the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater area. We've seen another university report a case, and again -- this is a very proactive measure to stem the tide of mumps transmission here in the university," Paul Biedrzycki with the Milwaukee Health Department said.

Mumps is spread through coughing, sneezing or close contact.

    We know that vaccines aren’t working because several of the people who came down with the measles in the recent Disney outbreak were vaccinated.  That fact – that vaccinated individuals got the disease that their vaccine was supposed to prevent – negates the current media feeding frenzy.  You’d think focusing on those vaccinated individuals who fell ill is a more of a breaking news story.  You’d think that because we’re told so many times that vaccines are always life-saving, safe and effective, effective in preventing disease.  Evidently, they are not. The adjuvants required in vaccines to stimulate the immune response include mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum, which are known neurotoxins. Preservative-free vaccines may not have mercury, but there has been no public outcry against formaldehyde, aluminum and many others, so these remain in vaccines as adjuvants. Additionally, a study from Kobe University, which showed that vaccines reliably induced autoimmunity, did not include any toxic adjuvants or preservatives such as mercury, aluminum, or formaldehyde normally used in vaccines. (13) This negates the more safely perceived practice of vaccinating with preservative-free vaccines. Where’s that media fuss? You won’t see it.
