Girl is 5 yrs old and according to the small booklet obtained from Sunway hospital, she need to have it, but this is not a compulsory jab by the government.
Can anyone answer me?

We didn't give 'medical' advice ..
Anyway ... if his/her daughter gets rubella (which is a very short term but intense viral infection) while she's pregnant, the virus will affect the foetus ..
Now, this is 'medical' advice ...!~
But Rubella can infect anyone ... no danger to males, except for your sperm count!~ ;-)
Khap!~
