One day last year I was talking to my students... we were talking about something most of us had experienced, and I asked how many had gotten chicken pox. I expected all of them to raise their hands. NO ONE DID!!!! I was shocked.
Now I have twins and am questioning the chicken pox vaccination. It hasn't been around for very long and I have read that they aren't sure if the vaccine will last through adulthood. If a person gets chicken pox as an adult it can be SO much worse!!!
What do you think? Should I have them get the shot? Would it be better to just let them get it like we all did?
Another worry is that my husband hasn't ever had chicken pox. Could he be immuned? Or, could either getting the shot... or letting them get the chicken pox be worse?
