A 40-something guy I work with contracted chicken pox. I was inoculated as a child but I still got them in high school. I only got them on my belly. At that time the doctor said I could still get them as an adult. That was 25 yrs ago. I know a lot can change in that time. Am I in danger of getting them again? Can I get vaccinated again to be safe? BTW, I have Lupus so my immune system isn't very good to begin with.

You need to call your doctor and explain to him/her this and see what they have to say. The older you are the worst they are if you get them. My friend never got them as a kid and got them at 24 and she had them EVERYWHERE i mean EVERYWHERE. You having lupus isn't the best you have been exposed to them.
