I am on another forum, and your usual pro-vax nonsense abounds.

 

There have been about 5 people who have posted saying:

 

"My child was vaxxed but got the chicken pox anyways.  I am so glad they were vaxxed - my doctor assures me they got a lighter case because of the vax."

 

My hunch (although I lack evidence and stats) is that this is a bunch of BS.  I suspect it is a line health care professionals spin to both sell the vax, and pacify parents whose kids had the vax, but got CP anyways.

 

Anyone have any evidence or studies that show that CP contracted after vaccination is just as bad as CP contracted without vaccines?

 

TIA!

 

Edited to add:  pro-vaxxers: I can find pro-vax documentation on this.  Save yourself the google hunt.  I really am only interested in non-vax or vaccine -questioning links at this point.

Only personal observational experience. When my kids had it several vaxed kids got it as well, some cases, regardless of vax status, were mild and others were more severe.

My personal experience was thus (none of us are vaxxed for CP)

 

I had it around 7-9 - it was very mild

My son had it around 4 - very mild

My daughter had it around 4 months old (she was being nursed at the time, she got it anyways).  It was moderate - lots of pox, but no fever or other complications.  She has a scar or two - no biggie.

All three of mine (no vax) were mild to moderate in regards to spots, that is they had spots but not excessive amounts and none in "bad" places. None of them were sick, ie fever, vomiting, diarrhea etc. I never had chicken pox, or I had a sub-clinical dose because I have been exposed more times than I can count.

 

Oh, as for scars, DD1 has a couple and the other two have none.
