Re: Chicken pox or Vax??? Help!!
I would get the vaccine. Chicken pox sucks, and IMO, there's no reason to spend a week or more miserable unnecessarily. Negative side effects of the vaccine are incredibly rare, and with MRSA so common, I wouldn't risk it. I acutely remember at age 5 how god-awful sick I was, and I wish that the vaccine had been available then.
