You sould have your immunity tested before you have the shot. You may be naturally immune as rubella is a very mild disease for children. If you are hoping to get pregnant you should have the shot and not get pregnant for a month afterwards. If you are pregnant, have the shot straight after the birth and don't get pregnant again for a month. Some women have been pregnant and had the shot (by mistake) and their babies have not been affected, but I wouldn't risk it.

Hmm nothing much if you're not pregnant.
