Is it necessary to get the mumps vaccine after you have already been exposed?

In brief: Depends.............

The only way to determine if you have immunity against the virus, you would need an antibody titer. If it is in the accepted protective range, then no.
If the tier is below that level, then any exposure you might have had with the virus was not sufficient to produce immunity and you should then receive the mumps vaccine.
