  • yes, but most of the time when I child is vaccinated, it helps reduce the side effects they could have had for the disease. Either way, it's best to take them to the doctor just to be sure of what it is.

  • Yes, even if your child is vaccinated they can still contract the disease they were vaccinated for.

  • Vaccination is not a guarantee the disease will not be contracted. It is protection against, and if it is contracted it provides enough that usually it's a lighter case of whatever disease.

  • Yup, it's possible. Your child can still contract ANY disease they've been vaccinated for.

  • Yes and the vaccine may actually CAUSE a slight case of CP.

  • Can a child who has had chicken pox get it again. Yes. Same principle. :)

  • yeah my daughter is almost 3 and has had 2 vac shots for it and she still got them but a mild case

    Answer by margarita13 at 2:44 PM on Apr. 17, 2009

  • Yes.. vaccines are only like 85% effective or something like that. It's probably a smart idea to call the doctor :)

  • Yes, the shots don't keep you from getting anything, it's meant to keep your child from dying of it, or having a severe reaction that could cause hospitalization or severe life impacting problems.
