Information About Mumps
On May 6, 2015, a UT Austin student was diagnosed with mumps, a contagious viral infection. Since this date, University Health Services (UHS) has become aware of a small number of subsequent cases. Individuals identified as having potential exposure have been directly notified by UHS in coordination with the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department. The UT Select medical insurance plan for staff and faculty provides 100% coverage with zero co-pay or deductible for recommended vaccines, including the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR). Many local pharmacies are in-network and offer vaccine services on a walk-in basis. For information about UT Select preventative health services, visit the UT Select Living Well site.
