Hi doctor i'm 21 year old, i did my igG antibodies test for measles,mumps and rubella but results were -ve, should i consider taking MMR vaccine?
Two Doses: The vaccine comes as combined MMR now w/ the rubella portion (german measles mixed w/ mumps & measles) in 1989, young people in the usa, began getting 2 doses of MMR after increased outbreaks erupted on single dose regimen.

Can one get rubella after a vaccine? What are the chances of a vaccinated individual getting rubella?
Possibly: 5% of people do not respond to the 1st dose of MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine. A 2nd dose is thus given to catch this small group of non responders. Unlike other vaccines then, the second dose is not a booster--it is another chance for those 5 % who did not make antibodies the first time. If you were a non responder exposed to rubella after your first dose--you could catch the disease! ...Read more
