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.[2] Women may develop ovarian swelling but this does not increase the risk of infertility.[3]” Source Wikipedia

Infographic and link in comments explain why these cases were in mostly vaccinated people.

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