on another board that I go on just announced that one of her children has chicken pox even though he was vaccinated for it. I guess if you can still get something even if you were vaccinated against it, then why bother getting the vaccination?

What I am seeing now, is parents who get angry because other kids are not vaxed, and they think their vaxed child will catch a disease from the non-vaxed kids. This makes no sense. If the vax does not protect your child, then why bother getting it for them?

Also, everyone I know who gets the flu shot, usually gets the flu anyway during flu season. It doesn't seem to help anyone at all.

Their contention is that:


1) There is a portion of people that receive vaccines that do not seroconvert, and being unvaccinated endangers them.


2) They do not pretend that vaccines are 100% effective, and one person that does not comply can have detrimental effects to the others.


3) Because of #2, the unvaccinated child endangers herd immunity.

No mention at all of strokes. Does that occur after one of the other complications that ARE listed?

In a few years we'll be hearing about all the healthy adults who died from chickenpox because their trusted vaccine waned. It is bad for adults. Because most kids throughout history got it - and survived - it's referred to as a "childhood" disease.

It is amazing the kind of stuff people believe (shakes head). Tell your husband to take that time he spends worrying and instead - read. It's a waste of time to have illogical fears, trust me, I've had enough myself to know.

By now, I'm assuming you've gone in for your "treatment". I would enjoy hearing what they treat chicken pox with. I hope it's not NSAID's.

I hope she will realize that a whole slew of people get the disease they were vaccinated for. I was shocked meet so many with the chicken pox story, if the CDC was keeping track, nobody would vaccinate for chicken pox, they wouldn't trust it.

Hi, I'm a lurker, but I had to comment on this.

I went to pox parties too, and it never took. I got very mild (doctor diagnosed) cases 3 times, and then when I was 21 I got shingles (which is the same virus). Just getting chicken pox doesn't always give you the immunity, so I assume the vaccine is the same way. Now I avoid anyone with pox because I don't want to get it again, esp. now that I am pregnant.
