Dude, A gal at church had 3 of her kids get CP (one got them first and then 2 more broke out) and I exposed my kids with great anticipation and they got nothing... TWICE!!!
I don't know how that happened, they shared suckers and straws and whistles with the first kid and then it was the older ones who got it the second time and they were pretty much constantly carrying my kids around for a couple hours and sharing cups. How?!!

I'll keep an ear out if it pops up again though!

Wow, I really should have rubbed my shingles all over DS! All you gotta do is get super stressed out, break out in shingles, and then rub it on your kid!

my neighbor has shingles, but he would probably be a little weirded-out having some kids come over looking for CP! (espeically since they just had thier baby vaxed for cp a few days before he broke out with shingles!)

i just had to share the irony... sorry, i don't have any (other) leads! my dd is still too young, otherwise, i would have tried to expose her.

I am also looking for someone who has the chicken pox who wouldn't mind sharing them with my son. Somewhere in the salt lake area, I know there is an outbreak in a school around here somewhere, hoping that someone close that I can expose him too.

This bums me out b/c I can't wait until my DD is 5 - she's starting school in a few weeks, and I'll either have to get the vax or she'll have to have immunity. My son is only 16mos and still BF, but I figured it'd be mild for him if he got it (hopefully). Any advice, mamas? I'm honestly driving myself crazy over this - I don't know what to do!

We're vaccinating selectively, and that's my issue. If we sign the exemption now, we can't get any more vaxes. My DS also needs some, so that's why it's an issue for us. Bah - this is so not right!

You can do whatever you want.

Sign the form for the vax you don't want to do, or just choose to be exempt from all. (I agree with mybabysmama...it just might be easier to sign as exempt for all vaxes and do what you want in terms of selectively vaxing.)
