In my area, mid Atlantic coast US, it is extremely uncommon. My last child who got chicken pox is 21, now. I arranged it because her brother was due (he's 18) and I didn't want to have a newborn and a toddler with pox. So, when I heard there was some going around, I borrowed a child to come lick things. She had a good case, for which I was thankful, but the three younger children are still at risk.She's been doing so for a couple months now but so far no luck. Is chickenpox becoming that uncommon now??
You might have to be patient. I see you are in Canada - and while I cannot speak for AB, chicken pox does circulate infrequently in ON. I think chicken pox vaccination is slightly lower in Canada than the USA. This might be changing, though. In the past 15 years I have known of 3 separate outbreaks in our local area and DD did indeed catch chicken pox (her older brother and sister had it as very young children in BC). So...you may find it, but keeping an eye out might mean years as opposed to months. Good luck!She's been doing so for a couple months now but so far no luck. Is chickenpox becoming that uncommon now??
