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.

Can the rubella vaccine cause autism? I’ve heard stories about the MMR vaccine, which includes rubella, can cause autism or other problems. Is there any evidence that this could be true?

In . In 1998, a doctor by the name of andrew wakefield published a study in the lancet journal implicating a relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Wakefield's study was found to be fraudulent, the data was manipulated and the study was retracted by the lancet in 2004. Dr. Wakefield even had his medical license revoked for unethical practices. After this study was published in 1998, it spurred tons of research looking in to whether the relationship between vaccines and autism could be true. There have been well over 100 large-scale studies and evidence reviews looking at the relationship between vaccines and autism and every single one of those studies has shown that vaccines (including the mmr) do not cause autism. Below, i've linked to 3 websites that discuss this controversy and the research involved in-depth. I will also add that i vaccinated my own child on the schedule recommended by the center for disease control and american academy of pediatrics without any hesitation. Read more...
No, there isn't. Adding to the scientifically correct answer you received is that both inheritable genetic predisposition & epigenetic factors (things that change function, but not structure, of fetal genes) occur before birth. There's some evidence that the "flu" & other maternal infections with fever > week increase the risk. Congenital rubella causes intellectual disability & autism, not the MMR vaccine. Read more...
NO. I too have heard stories about magic, fairies, and unicorns etc. But as with these things, there is a huge amount of research evidence that autism is not caused by this vaccine.And there is literally no evidence of a scientific nature supporting this claim. So be wise and immunize. Read more...
