But why worry about mumps? Just a harmless childhood disease, right? “Complications may include infections of the covering of the brain (15 percent), pancreatitis (four percent), permanent deafness, and painful testicular swelling which uncommonly results in infertility.

So please, talk to your doctor about an MMR booster. It can’t hurt.
