In brief: Hard to predict

The only reason to do it again would be if you were considering another pregnancy.
The earlier vaccine may not produce a high enough antibody titer for them to consider you protected, but you might be anyway.Rubella is a relatively minor illness to children & adults.However it but can trigger abortion,deafness, blindness & organ failure in a fetus.Your risk of exposure to wild rubella is minimal.

In brief: Probably not

This is an attenuated virus in the vaccine which, in the absence of an inability of your immune system to respond, should produce life-long immunity.
There is certainly waning of immunity with age, but this does not seem to have become a problem with rubella. Contrary to measles, there does not appear to have been an increase in cases in the U.S. In the past several years.
