Measles outbreak

Hi I have a relative coming out from Germany who will be 6 months pregnant. She is concerned with the recent measles out break and the risk involved. She apparently had a booster in Australia last year but was recently tested in Germany and was told that she is not immune to rubella. She would rather not come if the risks are too high. Would like your thoughts on this

Thanks

Measles and rubella are different. Measles is not a big risk to a pregnancy whereas rubella is.
