Yes, there is a vaccination for rubella; however, if you already have it, a vaccine will not do any good.  Please consult your obstetrician as soon as possible and set up an appointment to ask him/her about treatment options.  You need to get your questions answered.  Good luck to you and keep that baby safe. :)
