Has your child had the chicken pocks? Well, Stasia has never. We went to the health clinic the other day, because she missed her Hep B shot at school before spring break. When we were there they told us she qualifies for the chicken pock vaccine. Well for some reason I was sceptical of it because it is fairly new. Anyway after talking to the nurse we decided to get her immunized for it. Did you know that if she contracted the chicken pock virus when she is an adult and happens to be pregnant, the baby would most likely not survive and if there was a minimal chance of survival it would be completely deformed. I was shocked! So I felt like I was not only protecting my daughter, I was protecting my unborn grandchildren. I could not believe that from chicken pocks, such a terrible thing could happen. So if your older child has not had the chicken pocks, I would think about getting some more information on what can happen if they get them when they are older, and maybe you might end up at the heath clinic too.
