hi sir, welcome to HCG, i understand ur problem, rubella vaccine cant be given in pregnancy, pregnant women cannot given live vaccines like measles, mumps, rubella. because this vaccine made by dead viruses, rubella is called german measles, it will spread by person to person cough or sneeze. vaccine should be available in combination form called MMR vaccine. this vaccine is safe with mild side effects are fever, redness or swelling on the location of injection. no need to worry, hope u satisfy with my answer, thank u
