What’s new?

Auckland is currently experiencing an outbreak of Mumps; with the majority of those infected aged 10 to 19 years.  Mumps is a serious and highly infectious viral disease prevented by the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccination.

Mumps is spread from an infected person by saliva or mucous droplets when coughing, sneezing, or talking.  It can be spread via face to fact contact within a metre, or by touching an object infected from saliva and mucous, such as a used tissue or keyboard.  Antibiotics will not treat this infection or reduce your risk of catching mumps.

Early symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite.  The salivary glands on one or both sides of the face, cheeks or jaw may become swollen and sore after two days.

Most people recover from mumps however some individuals can develop rare complications.  Men and adolescent boys can experience pain and swelling in their testicles, which in rare cases can result in infertility.  Females can experience ovarian inflammation.  For pregnant women there is risk of miscarriage in the first three months.  In some people mumps can cause permanent hearing loss.  In very few cases, mumps can lead to inflammation of the brain and surrounding tissue (meningitis).

The best way to protect against Mumps is to be vaccinated with 2 doses of the MMR vaccine.

Rheumatic Fever Prevention Programme

Rheumatic Fever is completely preventable by correct treatment of Strep A sore throat infections. Untreated, this can result in damaged heart valves and decreased life expectancy.

High risk groups are Maori and Pacific children aged 4 – 19 years, and also those in poor quality, crowded housing.

Concerning symptoms are: temperature >38 C, no cough, swollen tonsils (with or without pus), and swollen lymph nodes.

Massey Medical Centre is a designated Rapid Response Clinic for treatment and prevention of Rheumatic Fever – this means you can be seen by the nurse immediately and may avoid needing a doctor’s appointment.
