I fear I might have missed this one on the health questionnaire. I received all the requisite MMR vaccines as a child (optional at the time here in Italy, but mom had us do all the required vaccines in the US) but somehow the mumps part didn't 'take' and I got a mild case of Mumps at age 8. Their were no complications and I frankly forgot about the whole thing until I had to fill out a child health record for the dental part of the DoDMERB where they ask specifically if you've had mumps. So my question is : Is Mumps considered a 'serious illness' ? What about the other 'childhood' diseases (chicken pox etc) ? Thank you !
