NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — Officials say some students at Fordham University in the Bronx have been sick with the mumps.
University heath officials confirmed that eight students on the Rose Hill campus have contracted the disease since January despite vaccinations.
The school says all the students infected have either returned home or have been isolated from other students.
Vaccinations do not offer 100% protection against the illness.
Mumps can cause fever, headaches, muscle aches, fatigue and loss of appetite.
