BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Three more students at Indiana University’s Bloomington campus have the mumps.

The university said it learned about the sick students last week. It confirms that a total of six students have gotten sick with the mumps since February.

The school is currently working with both county and state health departments in monitoring the situation.

The school, in coordination with the Monroe County Health Department, is offering free MMR doses to those who came in close contact with the infected.

The university requires all students to be vaccinated against the mumps by the second semester of freshman year.
