Our expert says:
German measles is spread by droplets, in sneezing and coughing. It is usually contagious even before the patient has symptoms. It is most dangerous in the first 3 months of pregnancy. If you can't remember if you had the German measles vaccination you can have a blood test to determine if you have antibodies against it. Most women are tested for this early in pregnancy. One can get viral infections again if you had it very light and did not develop immunity against it the first time.
