Hi all,

I just recieved a letter in the post today informing me that my first IVF apt is on Tuesday as they had a cancallation. In the letter it was saying that I need to get Rubella vacines done by GP or to bring certficates from my GP to confirm that I have had these done.

I have googled this and am I right in thinking that I probably had these vacines as a child? Do I need to get them done again, is it just a matter of getting prove from my GP?

What are peoples experiences of this if that is okay to ask?

Depends what age you are as to what vaccines you got. In my day we got a stand alone rubella vaccine and mmr came Iater (1988 I think)

Hi thanks for response, I am 32 years old so I am not sure but is this something you need to get again if you have had it as a child?

@freespirit, i was 32 and had to be tested at docs for rubella i didn't have the antibodies so had to have the jab again (i had when younger also) it delayed my treatment a couple of months.
