“You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with law and order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.”

–Ronald Reagan, A Time For Choosing, October 27, 1964

The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) is investigating a large outbreak of mumps in northwest Arkansas. So far there have been 476 confirmed cases of mumps, mostly in school-aged children and college students in the northwest area of the state. We are sending this health alert to clinicians across Louisiana to be alert for the signs and symptoms of mumps given our proximity to this outbreak.

Immunize your kids, folks.
