Hi Girls

On Friday I found out that I do not have immunity to Rubella.
I have booked an appointment on Tuesday to see my GP to discuss it.

Should I get vacinated against it? What are the prons & cons?
I remember MMR vaccines were a hot topic in the news 2-3 year ago...

Thank you.

RE: Rubella?


I'm pretty certain that before you have any treatment you will have to have a rubella jab. As far as I know it is a major box that has to be ticked! Maybe you can just a single rubella jab if you are worried about the MMR?

I know that rubella can be v dangerous if you get it when pg so I guess that's why they like to make sure you have immunity.

Hope this helps?!?

Definately - you can't have treatment (at least where I went) before you are immune. I found I wasn't immune either..I think I must have changed schools around the time they were jabbing at schools and so missed it...I also think you have to wait a month after the jab before resuming ttc (it might be less).

As far as I know there is no danger with the rubella jab - but it is dangerous to the baby if you don't have it.

for adults rubella is often given as a single vaccine not as mmr and it is VERY safe (although I think you wouldn't want to TTC immediately after getting your shot - but your GP should be able to tell you how long to wait).

catching rubella when you are PG carries a risk of deafness and deformity for the baby.

I would think it would be a pretty good idea to get a shot now, but there is a small group of people who don't develop immunity after one shot, and some of this group still don't develop immunity after multiple shots.
