i have had something like 5 vaccines for rubella and my son even had his shots for it.. im still "not" immune according to all blood tests and 2 months after my son had the shot for MMR he ended up with rubella. It isnt really anything to worry about.

Rubella is asymptomatic in 20-50% of cases. However, symptoms can include transient rash, swollen lymph nodes, and no respiratory symptoms. Adults might experience arthritis or joint pain. Diagnosis is further hindered by the fact it can look like other viruses, and symptoms can be fleeting; in fact the only way to get a history of Rubella accepted is by positive serology.
