Athletes, technical staff and other members of the Brazilian football delegation are vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella. The measure was adopted as a prevention after Richarlison should be sent to a mumble diagnosis. And you know what that is? Mumps is an infectious infection and usually affects the salivary glands or those near the ear. Director of the Department of Immunization and Contagious Diseases of Health Ministry Júlio Croda explains the symptoms of this disease.
"In connection with this swelling of the salivary gland, which can only occur on one side or on both sides, a person may have elevated temperature, headache, fatigue, lack of appetite, and pain when chewing and swallowing due to gallbladder swelling"

The disease is very contagious and the only way to avoid it is to protect it against the viral vaccine and viral tetra vaccine, which is free for use in a unique healthcare system and therefore it is important to be aware of the vaccination schedule, says Júlio Croda.
"We come at the time of the Brazilian Vaccine Movement, and it's important that all people understand and appreciate the vaccination action, especially in children, where most of our vaccination schedules have been adopted." In this case, we have vaccination against measles, mumps and rubella for a period of 12 months to 15 months.
Mucus transfer occurs by contact with respiratory tract secretions, an infected person when speaking, coughing or sneezing. There is no specific treatment, so it is recommended only rest, use of fever and local pain remedies and careful observation of complications.
