Although I work for Carolina, where basketball reigns supreme, it is not unheard of to meet a hockey fan. That’s me… a major hockey fan. And, if you’re like me and follow the NHL, you know that this hockey season has been marked by an outbreak of the mumps. But it’s not just hockey. If you’ve watched the news lately, you know there has also been a measles outbreak at Disneyland. These events remind us that communicable diseases spread quickly and can have devastating effects. Thankfully, we have vaccines for many of these highly contagious communicable diseases.
