Brief Answer:
Not needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

Since your daughter has already received two doses of MMR she does not need further doses of the Measles Rubella vaccine. However, if still given, it would simply act as a booster and would not cause any harm.

The vaccine is usually tolerated well without any side effects.

I'm planning for a baby around March 2014 onwards. Recently I heard about the Rubella vaccination. Some say it's compulsory, some say it's not required in climatic conditions as that of India.
Please suggest and also do let me know what exactly is the medical term for this vaccination that will help me buy it from a chemist. i.e.: the exact name, quantity, etc.
I'm 31+ yrs of age, currently a housewife but planning to take up a full time job soon as was doing until Oct. last year.
I also face problems of Alopecia. Worried that it will become severe later during pregancy.
Kindly advise.
Thank you.
