It’s not immunity, it’s infection! The point of “immunity” is NOT getting sick.


I would like to add a couple:

Not only can Chicken Pox be deadly, later in life it can come back as Shingles which can be excruciatingly painful and debilitating and deadly (and cause blindness, brain damage, etc)

diseases mutate, they are giving them more vectors to do so

Thanks for posting this. I'd heard of folks deciding to not vaccinate their children, but hadn't realized some people took such joy in spreading infection to others. Sad.

I am a parent, my kids take part in the dutch national vaccination program.

In the Netherlands there is no active vaccination of chickenpox, 95% of the childeren will get it before they are 12. It is not that chickenpox is dangerous only 2 in 100,000 die. The mortality rate of flu is much higher 30 in 100,000.

There is no way you can prevent ever getting sick.

I'm not an expert when it comes to this. Didn't even know this was possible. Useful read, appreciate your posting this.

Tjeerd, national vaccine policies vary. I believe the Netherlands has national health care. The US does not, nor does it have a robust safety net.

So an ill child requires medical care and home care for at least two weeks.

These two reasons were (in part) why the varicella vaccine was mandated for school entry.
