OMG military moms!

I'm sure you all probably know this I just watched this on the news...Just something to be aware of if your hubby gets that smallpox vax and your child has excema

Quote:
Doctors said the child suffered from eczema, which is a known risk factor for vaccinia infection. People with eczema are warned not to have close physical contact with the recently vaccinated because the condition allows the virus to enter the skin

Re: OMG military moms!

Hubby had his vax before Gavin was born, so he won't need it for a while. But this is still nice to know since Gavin does have exzema and the new baby will most likely as well. Thanks mama!

My DH has always gotten whatever vaccines he needs just before getting on the plane to leave because we've had infants in the house both times he's deployed.

Re: OMG military moms!

DH gets all his vaxes underway and they stay out until the quarentine (sp?) pd is over. I think they usually try to do it when they will be away from their families.
