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?

I survived the chicken pox too. Both of my children survived it as well. Most everyone I know also survived the chicken pox as a child. My son was vaccinated for it, my daughter was not. Every single time I hear/read the phrase "they won't get such a severe case if they get vaccinated" - it makes me feel like going ballistic. I have now met three people who share my son's story. My son got a terrible, terrible case of chicken pox, it was unreal. He was never hospitalized, but that was probably because our doctors didn't realize how long he had had it when I finally demanded that they see him (we used a back-door). It was a very long illness, nothing like what my un-vaccinated daughter got. She had a few blotches, not a few hundred, she never had a fever, unlike the high fevers my son got. She was over it in days, his lasted the entire summer if you include the Impetigo that followed the pox.

That vaccine is the most illogical of all. There are new studies suggesting that being exposed to the CP could be beneficial. I don't believe all disease are meant to be eradicated. I believe we need to stop trying.

Ditto.


I am reading K a book on the human body right now for kids. It has pull outs etc. One page you pull out and then the kid has chicken pox, etc as a childhood illness.


We went to pox parties when we were kids also at the ADVICE of the Doctor.


Yes, times have changed.

They had you use the back door? For chicken pox? Has it always been that way for kids coming in w/chicken pox? Or just since the vax came out and it became a disease to be feared and dreaded?

I have heard so many times that kids get cp despite having been vaxed for it. Seems to me that it's definitely not an effective vax. I guess eventually they'll decide that more boosters are needed.

My peds office has had this "back door" policy for any kid coming in with a systemic rash for as long as we've been taking our kids there (which is long before the cp vax came out.)

White Sox vs. Red Sox for the ALCS?


That is, if the White Sox show up in Tampa.

"Has it always been that way for kids coming in w/chicken pox?"

People are/were so used to having the pox as kids that when their kids got it, they didn't take them to the doctor...I mean, why would they ya know?

I wanted them to come out to the car and they couldn't do that for liability reasons. So the nurse told us to come to the back door instead of through the waiting room. I want to know what she was so worried about...after all, most kids are vaccinated and the babies pediatric doctors were across the hall and did not share a waiting room - what was there to fear?
