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.
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
I just looked it up, and when CP was added to the schedule varies greatly from country to country (I do not think it is part of the schedule in UK at all, for example).
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.

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.
