Patient :Hi, I am 16 weeks pregnant and just found out that I am not immune to rubella even though I have had the 2 doses of vaccines. I went to talk to a nurse at my doctors and she said not to travel to Southern California because of the outbreak. I am very confused. I thought Southern California had an outbreak of rubeola? They are different viruses correct? Is there any danger for me to travel? All of my family is in Southern California and the thought of not being able to travel to see them for 1.5 years is horrible.
