Pregnancy is considered a contraindication to rubella immunization, although data collected since 1971 suggest that vaccination within the first 3 months of conception poses little risk of congenital rubella syndrome. The recipients of the vaccine should be advised not to become pregnant over the next 3 months
Self Explanatory
Rubella is caused by a pleomorphic, RNA-containing virus currently listed in the family Togaviridae, genus Rubivirus. The virus is usually isolated in tissue culture, and its presence is demonstrated by the ability of rubella-infected African green monkey kidney (AGMK) cells to resist challenge with enterovirus. During clinical illness the virus is present in nasopharyngeal secretions, blood, feces, and urine. Virus has been recovered from the nasopharynx 7 days before exanthem and 7{endash}–8 days after its disappearance. Patients with subclinical disease are also infectious.
Generally Live vaccines are contraindicated in pregnancy
