German Measles: Another name for Rubella.
German Measles (condition): Viral infection now rare due to vaccination.

German Measles: Measles, mumps, and rubella were once very common diseases in the United States, but they have become rare because of the use of vaccines to prevent them. As with many other diseases, measles, mumps, and rubella generally are more severe in adults than in children. Most adults are immune to all three infections because they had them (or a vaccine) as children.1
