Lafene Health Center will have a walk-in measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccination clinic for Kansas State University students, faculty and staff from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms for the mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite and swollen and tender salivary glands under the ears on one or both sides. It is spread from respiratory droplets, which are transmitted by sneezing and coughing.
