In brief: Yes

Two doses of rubella vaccine is currently recommended.
Second dose is generally to boost the protective antibody level already worn down with time.

In brief: Vac vs immune

Having natural rubella or two doses of the vaccine at least a month apart sometime after the 1st birthday is the common way to acquire immunity.
Because of the significant risk of congenital rubella ( caused by infection during pregnancy),OBGYNs often test for Rubella immunity (blood test) and give boosters if needed that would protect a future pregnancy.
