Hi moms! I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts about the chicken pox vaccine? My hubby and I got talking about it and we can't seem to come to a consensus? My mom is an RN and she recomended that we have him vaccinated stating that my sister and I were both deathly ill when we had the chicken pox and that if she could have prevented it she would have. But my hubby thinks that its a normal childhood illness and that he doesn't need the vaccine? As for me, i'm not sure where I stand?!
I'm not againest immunizations whatsoever, my son is completly up-to-date, but there are just so many thoughts on vaccinating your children againest non-life threatning illnesses now! I'm just not sure what to do?
Any adivce/ experiences?
