Rubella vaccine cannot be given once you're confirmed pregnant. You may be offered a vaccine after the birth of your baby to protect you against rubella in the future. In the meantime, you should remember:
Avoid contact with anyone suffering from the infection
Rubella vaccine is routinely given to
children in the UK and so the chances of
being exposed to this infection are less.
Exposure alone to rubella does not mean that your baby will be affected. You will have to contract the infection for it to affect your baby.
If you do contract the infection, you will have to consider the effects on your baby before deciding to go ahead with the pregnancy.
The risk to your baby decreases as your pregnancy progresses (risk being highest in the first three months).
