    I've just a letter from my midwife telling me that in my blood tests im wasn't immune to Rubella!!!! I've always had the MMR and have had many tests where i have been immune. NOw naturally i am worried. I work in a hospital and im sure i have been tested there and always been immune.

    Do you think i should question my blood results?

    I would say it has just been a while since your last booster. Yesterday my midwife told me I would have to get a booster after the baby is born

    i'm sure i've had one in the last 10 years, i don't know. I think i'll contact the staff occupational health team at work and ask them. Just a worry when you work in the proffession i do. I know rubella is very rare but it'll be just my luck

    I don't know if the amount time since your last booster is really a factor. I haven't had a booster for MMR since I was a child and I still came back immune. Maybe you could have them retest if you don't feel that you got accurate results. Good Luck hun!!!!
