On its first day, Temple University’s free vaccine clinic delivered 2,285 doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine to students and faculty in the wake of a campus mumps outbreak that has sickened 106 people.
The clinic comes two months after the initial case — thought to have been contracted outside the area and brought on to campus — was reported. Since then, individual cases have popped up on other campuses.
