1. Send some to the vaccinated who still got mumps also.


"Statewide, there are 27 confirmed mumps cases so far this spring all young adults and about half of them college students. Three-fourths of the individuals were fully vaccinated against the mumps."

3. No vaccine is 100% effective.

Which is why herd immunity is so important.

If the vaccine is 95% effective, that 5% needs herd immunity for protection. As vaccination rates drop, herd immunity goes away.
