This vaccine can cause Rheumatoid Arthritis in teenagers or older.

Measles, mumps, and rubella are childhood disease. Those viruses should never be injected into a mature body because we don't have the capability to deal with it at this age. That is why they are called "childhood disease".

Even though you don't show antibodies does not mean that you are in danger of getting the disease. It has never been proven that antibodies truly protect a person from any disease.

There were 4 cases of rubella embriopathy in Switzerland between 1995 and 2001 of which [b]two of the women were fully vaccinated against rubella and showed antibodies[/b].
So, that shows that the vaccine serves no purpose.

Never take that vaccine when you are pregnant. It can cause birth defects. The chance of you getting rubella while pregnant is extremely slim. You have not gotten it in ??? years, why would you get it suddenly now?

If I were pregnant and had no rubella antibodies, I would use caution around sick children for the first trimester.

You can get these diseases at any age. Historically, they were considered childhood diseases because when there were no vaccines, most people got them when they were children (just like children get more colds and other illnesses). They are diseases that you only get once, and so the first time you are exposed you get it. When a disease is present in the society, you are likely to be exposed first in childhood, thus get it in childhood, and never get it again. You never get it again because after the first exposure your body produces antibodies which recognize the virus and attack it if you are exposed again. This is the principle that vaccines are based on. And vaccines DO work. That is why people in the U.S. no longer have to live in fear of polio and smallpox. But certainly there can be risks associated with vaccines, too, although these risks are generally very very small.

Measles, mumps, and rubella infections can be very dangerous for adults. You should discuss the risks of not getting vaccinated as well as your concerns about the risks of vaccination with your health care provider and come to a decision that you are comfortable with. But you should definitely discuss your personal situation with your doctor or a nurse.
