My children had their first chicken pox vaccination about one year ago (they are elementary age).  They have not had any sort of booster.

 

A good friend of mine called today telling me her child came home with CP.  Should I give my children a natural "booster" by taking them over and exposing them?  Am I risking them getting CP, or if they got sick would it be Shingles at this point?  Thoughts, ideas, advice please!

yes, it could possibly turn out to be a shingles infection rather than chicken pox that your kids get... i wouldn't do it...did your friend's child get the pox from the vax or another child who had wild pox?
