    MAYO has one of the worst uptakes in the country for the MMR vaccine, despite a recent spate of mumps outbreaks in the county.

    Parents have been urged to ensure their children are protected with the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine following a spike in diagnoses.

    The surge in mumps which hit universities, schools and sports clubs across the country this year was the highest since recording began with the introduction of the MMR vaccine in 1988.
