Vaccine and *natural* immunity?<br><br>

Are you asking about vaccine vs. natural immunity? One of the obvious pros of natural immunity is that you are very unlikely to get chicken pox again. The vaccine wears off & leaves people at risk of getting chicken pox later in life.

Then don't bother. Not everyone has to have chicken pox in their system.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I believe you mean vaccine immunity versus natural immunity from the wild virus?<br><br>
Well, anything that is natural is certainly better than trying to trick the immune system into believing that the child has had it.<br><br>
You might want to read threads about cp in the vaccine forum archives.

We purposely exposed our kids and all went well. My friend who has five just did the same and all five came down with it and all was well. It wasn't fun for any of them but with distraction it went faster.<br><br>
I think starting at age 3 and up is a good time to expose. The younger ones will get through it smoother than the older. I would start to feel nervous if my child still hadn't had them at age 14 and maybe research vaccination. Maybe.
