Rubella
My son (20 yrs) has german measles - what precautions can we (as family) take not to get it as well. Should we also be tested and should we not go to work until we know? (Nobody is pregnant)
We are going for intragram injections this afternoon - I don't want to stay off work, but also do not want to be blamed for causing an 'epdemic'

HLW, you should all be immune, so there isn’t really much to worry about as long as nobody is pregnant. Taking the Intragam® won’t do any harm. Good luck.
