Mumps Outbreak in Hawaii

I’ve spent a fair amount of time over the past couple of months in Honolulu for various family medical appointments.  I’ve just learned that there’s a mumps outbreak in Hawaii. There’s been almost 1,000 cases as of Mar. 15, 2018 with about 750 of those in Honolulu, according to the State of Hawaii Department of Health. They’re recommending all adolescents over the age of 10 and all adults born after 1959 get a booster shot.


  1. Interesting! I wonder how they’ll go about solving this issue – if they’ll be more strict about vaccinations or treat it case-by-case?
