Characterization of Large Mumps Outbreak among Vaccinated Palestinian Refugees
TLDR
Evaluation of the immune status of cases and healthy controls revealed high levels of mumps immunoglobulin G (IgG) and a low MuV-specific IgM in clinical cases indicative of a booster immune response, which suggested a secondary rather than a primary infection due to the insufficient protection conferred by the single vaccine dose included in the vaccination program.
