Amanda Buhlman to the team.

The Riverland Division of
General Practice (RDGP)
is encouraging parents
to ensure their children
are up to date with their
immunisations following a
mumps outbreak in South
Australia this month.
Mumps can be prevented by a
vaccination given at 12 and 18
months or at about 4 years of age
if not given earlier.
There were five mumps notifi-
cations in South Australia in 2013,
14 in 2014, and nine to date in
2015. There have been 15 notifica-
tions since November 2014.
Mumps is a febrile illness with
swelling and tenderness of the sal-
ivary glands. Headaches and respi-
ratory symptoms can also occur.
RDGP chairperson Ian Gartley
said it was “concerning” that when
there is a lack of disease in the
community, it was common for
people to become complacent and
for immunisation rates to drop.
“Immunisation plays an import-
ant role in protecting the health of
individuals and the entire commu-
nity,” he said.

There are a number of U3A

U3A Riverland course co-ordi-
nator Sue Britton said it was a
“great opportunity” for locals to
gain knowledge and new skills.
“It is all about sharing knowl-
edge, there is no exams and no
tests,” she said.
Other proposed courses include
furniture restoration, belly danc-
ing, ukulele lessons and comput-

U3A Riverland committee mem-

one interested to get involved.
“It is for men and women, both
semi-retired and retired, and the
philosophy is life is for living and
to be active physically, mentally
and socially,” she said.
“You can be a tutor if you want
to or you can be a participant.”
Membership for the U3A is $25
for an individual membership, or
$40 per couple, which includes
