I am not sure if this will make any sence (sp?) but I am wondering if my son (not vaxed) can say get sick with the vax another child got for say the flu or pox, because they are injected with a small amount of the sickness, can they pass that on? Thanks in advance!

Yes, it is possible. Vaxes with live viruses can "shed" and cause the illness. Search the forums for "shedding" and you'll find tons of stuff.

I'd just like to say that I don't think this means you need to avoid vaxed kids unless you have an immunocompromised child or newborn.

It's possible, but unlikely if your child's immune system is healthy and functioning. IMHO vaccinated children are at far greater risk from contact with each other after a live virus vaccine. :
