  • My stepson had the vaccine and he still got them and a really bad case too. He had them all over his body and in his mouth he was pretty much out of it for a couple days.
    I called my doctors office today and spoke to the nurse she said that I don't have anything to worry about since I had them when I was younger. She also said that if there would have been a problem with the immunity that I would have started having the spots show up by now.
    Thank goodness, that's one thing off my mind.

  • Your poor step-son.
    I'm glad you're mind has been put to ease.

    Having worked in the medical arena for so long (R&D type mostly) and with friends whom all do extensive research etc...
    I've done the research on the studies. I've seen the statistics on the pox w/o the vaccine.

    Chicken pox is - by and large - a non-event for children. They're horrific as adults though.
    Given that information. The vaccine should only be administered to adults who never had them --- if they're worried.
    The studies are still out on long term effects. I have alot of information that leads me to believe that shingles will be worse than ever after the entire population has been innoculated. Shingles, I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

    Thank goodness. I'm glad you're okay. Hope your stepson feels better. I know chicken pox is not fun.
