Mumps means nine days in isolation. No classes. No friends. No parties. Intense pain in cheeks and throat. Difficulty chewing or swallowing. Weakness. Fever. In some cases, severe testicular pain and swelling. Mumps can cause sterility, meningitis, arthritis and deafness.

In other words, getting the mumps really, really sucks.

But now there are additional mumps vaccination clinics scheduled this week at Dalhousie University.

They take place Monday, Oct. 1, Tuesday, Oct. 2 and Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 316 in the Student Union Building.

Students should bring their DalCard.
