Can a child still get rubella after an mmr immunization?

Rarely: The MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine is commonly given at 12 months of age with a booster prior to kindergarten entry. Following the first dose of mmr, about 95% of recipients will have protection against rubella. The booster is intended to produce immunity in those who did not respond to the first dose. As such, the risk of acquiring rubella in a vaccinated child is rare.

Yes__Very Rare: It is possible, but very rarely in the usa.
