In brief: There are none
German measles (rubella) is often never even noticed and at worst produces an uncomfortable arthritis and mild viral-type illness.
However, the great concern is permanent damage to the unborn child before 20 weeks. Before the vaccine, the effects were familiar to everyone -- these blind, deaf, brain-damaged &/or deformed children were common sights. Be grateful for immunization.
