Chicken Pox

OMG1 Thank goodness we 3 are vaccinated or had it,because there was a kid out yesterday at Old Country Buffet that had it! He still had open pustules! I said loud enough for those around us "I hope you all are vaccinated,because that kid has chicken pox!" How stupid are these parents?! there was a newborn baby 2 tables down from them!

  • even being vaccinated you child can still get it. also the vaccine wears off about the age of 12. so it's better for them to get it when they are young. chicken pox is not deadly for kids but it is for adults.

    but i do agree the child should have been at home recovering instead.

  • Some parents really do not like to be inconvienced. When my ss's had the chicken pox, they stayed home until they were scabbed over.

  • Wow! Why would you take your sick child out to eat at a buffet of all places! A drive thru would be more appropriate.

  • that soo gross. why would you take your sick kid out to eat in public like that. Not only is that a health concern but the child isn't feeling well. They should be home resting. Poor kid

  • That is a public health issue especially if a child is out with open pustules and a new baby is nearby. Granted I won't take my newborn son out just for this reason, but still. The restaurant manager should have asked them to leave and does have the right since it can harm others in his restaurant. I wouldn't have wanted to eat anything after he was near it with open pustules. Just wrong of those parents.
