UCC's website says the uptake of the MMR vaccine dropped in the mid 90s due to an autism scare, resulting in the re-emergence of mumps in teenagers and youg adults over the past 15 years.
Anyone who believes they have mumps is asked to contact their GP and stay away from campus until they are given the all-clear.
