Excuse Me?
My dr and the pharmasist told me I could give chicken pox to anyone who hadn't either had them or hadn't been vaccinated. I could also give them to pregnant women to actively stay away from pregnant women when I am in the blister stage of the virus.
I was also told that I could give SHINGLES to someone who has had chickenpox who might have a weakened immune system from anything, a cold, the flu ect.

Persons who have had neither chicken pox nor chicken pox vaccine may get chicken pox from someone who has shingles.
