Health officials tracking a mumps outbreak in central Ohio say 100 of the 153 confirmed cases have been linked to Ohio State University.
The cases span from early January through late last week.
State and local health officials are urging residents to make sure they're properly vaccinated with two doses of measles-mumps-rubella, known as MMR.
Mumps often starts with fever, fatigue and body aches. Those infected are urged to stay home for a few days, cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing, and frequently wash their hands.
