  • The varicella vaccine is going to cause millions of cases of cp in adults which is dangerous. it only has a limited immunity. (for thoses it works on in the first place) when that immunity goes away.... bam thousands of adults will die from a minor childhood illness

  • My girls had the chicken pox when they were young. All 3 had them at the same time, although the youngest was only 3 months old and had just a few spots so she ended up getting another mild case a few years later.
    There is nothing wrong with children getting chicken pox if the parent's know how to care for them. The vaccine is a waste of money and not really effective. I had 3 pediatricians tell me that the best way for a child to become immune is to actually have them because the vaccine is unreliable.
    A party would have been fun, though! I know my girls would have loved it. I have photos of the older two covered with Calamine lotion and sitting in the tub for relief. They don't have any scars at all, either.
