Johnson County officials have identified 28 cases of mumps in the county south of Fort Worth, with 23 of those cases in children.

The Cleburne and Keene school districts are working to identify the students who may have come into contact with students diagnosed with the virus.

Keene ISD is hosting on behalf of the Texas Department of State Health Services a free MMR vaccine clinic Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the elementary school cafeteria. In addition, Cleburne ISD is also hosting a free MMR vaccine clinic Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the high school library.

The recommendation from the Department of Health Services for adults:

1) If you have had the mumps virus, you are suspected to have immunity to the virus and do not need a MMR vaccination.

2) If you have not had the mumps virus nor the MMR vaccination, the recommendation is to get 1 dose of MMR vaccination.

3) If you have had 1 dose of MMR vaccination, the recommendation is to get the 2nd dose of MMR vaccination.

Pregnant women and mothers of children under the age of one year should consult their health care provider regarding the mumps virus and vaccination.
