A recent outbreak of Mumps is now prompting the state’s top doctor to urge you to get your children vaccinated.

This week is National Infant Immunization Week.

Director Nirav Shah says following a regular immunization schedule helps to protect infants and children before they are exposed to life-threatening diseases.

Shah adds that getting immunization shots also stops the spread of infectious diseases like the Mumps, which keeps local communities safe.
