The Child Health Committee of the MSNS recommends that the attenuated live mumps vaccine be given to “pre-adolescents and older males who have no previous history of mumps infection and for children in closed population groups (i.e. “residential schools”). Although they do not specify what type of residential school, it is likely they mean any type of boarding school, including the Shubenacadie Residential School for Mi’kmaw children [PANS, Acc. 2013-017, File 1495].
