Chicken Pox Vaccine

Here is an article about the rise of the occurrence of chicken pox in vaccinated children in TX. This isn't just happening there, folks. The danger of this vaccine is adult onset of the disease which is much more serious. Requiring booster shots is foolish. A real case of the disease would give life-long immunity, not just possible temporary protection. In addition, there has been a rise of shingles in small children who have been vaccinated. This is a vaccine of convenience. In the long run it is not a good choice for the health of our children.

Amen! My Biggest got the vaccine...then went on to get pox anyway thank God. Littlest will not get it. I told the doctor I'd consider giving to him at 13-16 if he'd not yet contracted them. We'll see...
