Just a basic question. Can I spread them if my son has it? Or does someone have to come into direct contact with him?

Well first of all it's always good to get chicken pox at an early age that way once you get them once.The main benefit of the chickenpox vaccine to individuals is long-lasting immunity to chickenpox.All other common vaccines require a booster dose to maintain immunity.Its highly unlikely to get them again. and I remember when I was younger and had the chicken pox my mom and all the other parents brought their children to come over to my house as a little play date so they would all get the chicken pox.
I have read the Japanese have being using the vac for 30 years and they have shown so far at least 20 years immunity-have not been able to find studies that show more-
