Re: Has your child ever had a VPD (vaccine preventable disease)

yep. He had chicken pox around 20 months. he is pretty much fully vaccinated, except for that one, and I deliberately exposed him to it. He had a super easy case too, about 10 spots that lasted for a week or so, and that was it... no fever, no itchiness, no crankiness. it was great, lol...

I had his titers done to make sure we wouldnt need a vax waiver for it, and yep, he's immune

Our son is fully vaccinated and hasn't had anything other than H1N1 (confirmed)

Our daughter is on a very delayed vaccination schedule and so far nothing for her either, other than the flu (not confirmed H1N1, not sure what strain)

My youngest 2 sons had RSV as infants and ended up hospitalized. One actually qualified for the RSV vaccine because he was a preemie but his insurance denied it.

You are correct. You do not get lifelong immunity from either the vax or natural disease. It is longer from the actual disease, I think. (I can't remember, honestly, it's been quite a long time since I needed to know this, lol.) However, even when your immunity does wane (which it will, eventually), your body will still have some memory of the disease, and the subsequent case will be milder than if you had never had it initially. IIRC, that is part of the reason why adults can unknowingly have it and pass it to others.

Rubella. I cant remember if this happened before her immunizations were complete.

Three of my kids had wild cases of chicken pox and they were not vaccinated against it.

Re: Has your child ever had a VPD (vaccine preventable disease)

My oldest is partially vax'd, middle has had 1 vaccine, and youngest has had 0 vaccines. No VPDs here.

I had chicken pox when I was 3 or 4, I don't know if I had the vax for it or not.
