My boys are 5.5 & 3. Neither one has ever been vaxed for anything. DS1 has never had a sick visit in his life! *knock on wood* DS2 had a UTI at 2wks old and croup twice (the first time we did goto the doctor... who prescribed us a humidifier and sent us home :p). :shrug: I do keep hoping to find chickenpox around and expose my boys to it though...

My five year old son has never been vaxed and he has never had a VPD. As a matter of fact, I exposed him to chicken pox and he never got it.

Just went through a nasty case of norovirus infection. I had it first and then my 2y/o DD1 and 5 m/o DD2.  Now we all feel a spout of a cold coming on but I guess it is just the season for it. Nothing that we could have prevented with vaccines. Both my DDs are unvaxxed.

So, if the Op is trying to sort out CP, there are 2 caveats:

 

1.  was the CP vaccine part of the vax schedule when your kids were little

2.  Did you deliberately try to have your kids catch CP  (per rachelsmama's point)

Many countries don't vax for it for public health reasons. It's increased shingles and lowered the typical age of shingles in the US.

I would be interested to see results from a poll like this for vaccinated children. I find it concerning how many vaccinated children and adults still contract the disease they were vaccinated against.

Well, I had two of the ones I was vaccinated against (1970s schedule): mumps and pertussis. I also had chickenpox but there was no vaccine for it back then.

 

My kids are both currently not vaccinated and the only VAD we've dealt with so far is pertussis. My up-to-date hubby brought it home and DS got it (he was 23 months old then). I didn't come down with it (my last bout of it was in my late teens) and my unvaxed DD (then 6) didn't come down with it either despite two family members hacking all around her.

  Why are daughters protected but not sons?
