A 53-year-old member asked:

Are some people more prone to getting rubella?

Yes: the unimmunized: All humans can get rubella (german measles). If your mother had the disease, you have some protection but only for 6 months. After that, you are on your own. The best defense is immunization which trades a very mild usually inapparent 'infection' for long term protection. Rubella is not innocuous-my sister, for example, has deafness and needed heart surgery in 1945 from rubella in utero.
