Patty and Tina were exposed to the mumps at school. Neither Patty nor Tina has ever had the mumps before, but several years ago Tina was given the mumps vaccine, which was made from the killed virus. Patty's mother had mumps as a child, and she is worried that Patty and her 2-month-old baby sister, who is breast-feeding, will get the mumps. Who is most likely to get the mumps and why?

    Patty's mom is, because her memory cells for the mumps virus have expired. The baby is, because she is too young to have passive immunity to the virus. Tina is, because the virus was dead in the vaccine she was given. Patty is, because she has no active or passive immunity to the virus.

    Lets say........ The baby has passive immunity from the mom's breast milk... in that case, Patty's mom has already had mumps, she has active immunity .

    Its a tricky Question... Tina is vaccinated, so she has less chance of getting mumps and as Patty's mother had mumps during childhood, so she is immune against mumps . At the end, Only patty is left !
