Specializes in Pediatrics

Some basics: A single rubella shot or MMR will protect 85% and 2nd shot brings protection up to 95%. In areas where there is poor vaccination rates or an active case, rubella risk is heightened for everyone. A kid with rubella can return to school 7 days after the rash appears.
