"This doesn’t mean the MMR vaccine isn’t working, says epidemiologist Kathleen Gallagher, DSc, MPH, the CDC’s team leader for measles, mumps, and rubella."

Because she said so?

“Two doses of mumps vaccine is believed to be 90% to 95% effective,” Gallagher tells WebMD.

Believed to be? But not proven to be. Anyone ever looked at how they arrive at such numbers? Do they use VAERS by chance?

No they do not look at VAERS, that is a database of reported adverse events- so it would not be a measure of efficacy.
