RICHMOND, VA—The University of Richmond is fighting back against a mumps outbreak that's plagued the campus for several months.
The school is partnering with the Virginia Department of Health to host a series of vaccination clinics.
The first free clinic will be held Wednesday morning and is open to faculty, staff and students.
As of last week, the university has six confirmed cases of mumps among the student body.
No one is required to receive the vaccine, but everyone on campus is recommended to go, if they've not already been vaccinated.
The free clinic runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be held at the Robins Center.
