Updated Health Information for ESU's Campus Community - April 17, 2019
As indicated in previous emails, East Stroudsburg University student health services
has been notified that one ESU student was tested for the mumps. We are relieved to
report that the test came back negative. But, with recent outbreaks in Philadelphia
and New York, it is important for members of the campus community to be aware of the
symptoms and take precautions to keep you and others healthy.
The symptoms for the mumps are similar to influenza (the flu) and often include tender
swollen glands below the ear and along the jawline on one or both sides of the face
and neck, headache, fever and cold-like symptoms. People with mumps are considered
infectious from two days before swelling begins through five days after the start
If you are experiencing symptoms, or have medical questions, you should follow up
with your Primary Care Physician immediately.
The recommendation is for those who have not had the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)
vaccine and have had close contact with a symptomatic person to receive the two-dose
series of the vaccine. If you have received the vaccine, the recommendation is for
you to receive a third dose. If you are immunocompromised or pregnant, please contact
your doctor immediately.
You can receive the MMR vaccine at
Your Primary Care Physician
Rite Aid - $88.00 (128 Courtland Street, East Stroudsburg)
Walmart - $87.88 (355 Lincoln Avenue, East Stroudsburg)
If those options aren’t available to you, ESU is working to set up a vaccination clinic.
Details will be available in coming days.
(Prices quoted above are out of pocket costs and may vary based on your insurance
coverage and outlet used. We suggest that you bring any medical insurance information
with you in case the cost of the vaccination/booster are covered.)
We have posted a webpage devoted to more detailed information and frequently asked
questions about mumps. Please visit
esu.edu/mumps today and in the upcoming days and weeks for more information.
