Ideally, you had CP as a child, and your child has CP. When you are exposed to your child's CP, you get a booster (one time is all you need) thus preventing shingles (a more serious CP-related disease) later in life. My DH's father, for example, noticed a single pox (and no other symptoms) when my DH and his sister had CP when they were kids - and DH's father did have CP as a child himself.
With vax, maybe you had CP as a child but your child is vaxed. You are not exposed as a young/middle-aged adult. Later in life, perhaps you are exposed to an outbreak and develop shingles and complications. Likewise, your child, later in life, may also be exposed.
