So, DS was exposed to Chicken Pox on Friday, and I have a friend who's son most likely will be coming down with them in a few days, and I am going to try to expose DS to him a couple of times to make sure he gets it.
My question, is how do I tell people that if they want it, they can come and get it from DS if and when he gets it? I have mentioned to a couple of friends that I was pretty sure would want it, and I have mostly had VERY FREAKED OUT responses from them. I am not planning to tell anyone else, but I know that some folks are looking for it.
A good friend of mine that is very AP, and I was nearly positive would be extremely interested in exposing her son looked at me like I said I was planning to cut off my son's arm. He had literally been exposed a half hour earlier, and she actually asked me if he was contagious right then. This is an intelligent, generally well informed, mama who researches things that impact her health and the health of her son. She was terrified that my son was going to infect everyone around him with a half hour incubation period.
How on earth do you tell people?????
ETA: Just also wondering where the insane fear of CP came from when most of the mamas I am talking to HAD CP as a child??? They are all like, if you get the CP vaccine, you will never get shingles as an adult, but if you have wild CP, you can get shingles later in life. I was of the understanding that if you get the CP vaccine, you can get shingles earlier in life (as a child, even), and when the vaccine wears off, you have no protection at all.
