** HOLD FOR RELEASE UNTIL 5 PM WEDNESDAY APRIL 9 ** FILE ** A nurse holds a vial of the mumps vaccine during a clinic sponsored by the Story County Public Health Dept., on April 26, 2006, at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

The outbreak was the biggest in the U.S. since shortly before states began requiring a second shot for youngsters in 1990. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)
