So we have 4 schools in our county who have confirmed Chicken Pox cases. One of the 4 is considered "outbreak" and kids are being excluded if they are not vaccinated unless the parents give consent to vaccinate them at the school. They are calling it an "odd" outbreak because majority (if not all) of the children have been vaccinated that are getting it.
They quote a few times that it is "Indiana Law" to be vaccinated, but I'm pretty sure Indiana does not have a "law" saying kids have to be vaccinated. I thought it was only a requirement for school unless you have an exemption.
Anyway, I'm just waiting for it to hit my youngest son's school. He's in preschool and could be looking at a vacation from school. Which I hate only because he is starting to make progress in the developmental preschool program but he could be excluded for a month or more if his school ends up with an "outbreak" (5 or more children diagnosed). I'm wondering if this round of chicken pox could be a different strain and that is why so many are getting it. And if so, why would I vaccinate him with a vaccine that clearly is not working? Plus, he will probably be exposed before the vaccine could take effect anyway.
