In brief: Separate diseases

Measles vaccine addresses the measles which is a very harsh illness in kids.
German measles is a different germ & actually a much milder disease in kids, but a devastating cause of miscarriage, birth defects, blindness & mental deficiency in babies who get it in the womb.
