Sorry, you are right, I should have said, 'rarely'. Careless typing when I'm in a hurry.

The virus is not known to cause illness in humans, and no adverse effects have been observed in children vaccinated with Rotarix, but the agency decided to err on the side of caution with the warning until more information can be obtained. http://www.medpagetoday.com/Infectio...Vaccines/20595

And the CDC says vaccines are safe, ha!

Haven't heard anything bad about Rotateq though.
I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that I don't know! DH and I had an appointment to talk about vaccines with our ped. two weeks ago, and she said rotavirus vax wasn't an option because it had been pulled. I would do more research, but since I didn't want it anyway, it just makes my decision easier!

Besides, there's now a vax for shingles.... It used to be that 30 year olds (and children) rarely got shingles, but since the vax for chicken pox more and more younger people and children seem to be getting shingles.

It did show a reduction in chances of getting shingles(or it is milder) according to the literature but I don't know how they would see this as it has not been around that long. I just went with it since it was spaced out anyway.

I mean I have friends in their 30's that had naturally gotten the chicken pox as a child are coming down with shingles quite bad cases too. These are people that never had the vax just naturally got them as a child. S o I do not know how one could relate or link them to the "newish" vax. Just a thought!

I do know they have a shingles vax now but from what I have read you have to be 50. Maybe that is wrong.

Going out on a limb here... the chicken pox vax is a live virus, so there is likely some shedding involved... Maybe the shed virus is more likely to cause shingles, even in people who had childhood cp?

I have been reading some studies are the varicella vaccination from back in the early 2000s that were attempting to predict the behavior of zoster based on vaccination for varicella. Many predicted a 50 year period that would demonstrate a mild increase in zoster. I think these studies seem to have been right so far
