This is why I get worried about the stories about "milder" cases following vaccination. Does this mean that the case is milder because the body has a good defense or because it has a "bad" defense and can't respond appropriately to the virus?

In what way were the children exposed to shingles? I just found out that my dh's aunt had shingles when we were visiting two weeks ago. I wish I had known then because I would've had dd be more "loving" in hopes of getting CP. I am keep an eye on her body to see if she develops pox, but am wondering if just casual contact may have been enough.

Well, I had it twice. The first time was really mild (maybe 10-15 spots) and the second time was the "real thing." I would think it would have more to do with how deeply the virus invaded your immune system, and not so much the number of pox. I doubt the two are absolutely directly correlated.
