I'm SO glad my kids got CP. Thank-you to DH for getting Shingles ;)
I would give it a try. Better to get it now than later. As far as killing people, so has the common cold in certain cases. If your children have normal immune systems, I wouldn't worry about it. CP is not much fun though, so be prepared for some grumpy kiddos for a few days!

that was how my kids got it. Even 3 (out of 6) of my vaccinated kids still broke out. Not as bad, but they still had spots all over. It was not as bad as even my mom made it out to be. They are uncomfortable (about 4 and up) from scratching but otherwise, it was not bad at all. My dd was born after the "outbreak" and if I can find another family with the pox, I will have a play date. :)
