WSU students asked to have mumps vaccination

The Associated Press

PULLMAN — Washington State University is asking students to make sure their measles, mumps and rubella vaccinations are up to date before they return from Thanksgiving break.

The school issued the advisory Monday in response to an outbreak of mumps at nearby University of Idaho where 10 cases have been reported and 20 more possible cases are under investigation.

No recent mumps cases have been reported in Pullman.

Mumps are no laughing matter, but in honor of this week’s Apple Cup, readers are adding a few good Husky and Cougar jokes here. This year’s game is in Pullman with a kickoff at 7:30 p.m. Watch it on Fox Sports 1. More on the match-up.
