Re: Varicella (Chicken Pox) Vaccine
When my daughter was 10 months old, she broke out in chicken pox. My sister at that time went for her vaccination and just stayed away from my daughter. Well, 3 weeks later my sister and I were at baseball game and we shared a drink. The very next day I broke out in chicken pox. My sister hadn't had her 2nd shot at that point and was worried that she would get the chicken pox from me.......and she didn't.
Basically, my point is that I think the risk of transmitting it to someone when you have been vaccinated is very minimal.............and I also think that contracting it shortly after you've been vaccinated it very minimal as well. My sister didn't experience any breakout from her vaccination and she didn't breakout from being directly exposed to it from me either.
