Question: 

My blood test showed I was vaccinated for Measles and Mumps, but not Rubella. My doctor advised me to get Rubella Vaccine. Is it safe to get MMR vaccine?

Answer: 

It is safe to get the MMR vaccine. The rubella vaccine is combined with the measles and mumps vaccine (the MMR vaccine).  You can get the MMR vaccine for free from your local public health unit.  Some pharmacies will also have the free vaccine. Women should avoid becoming pregnant for 1 month after getting the MMR vaccine.
