Stemming from the other vaccination thread, I brought up the fact that we do not vaccinate against chickenpox here in the UK.
I didn't even realise until I joined COM's that other countries DO vaccinate against it. I've always just thought of it as something that all kids get, like a rite of passage.
I'm pro-vaccinations, but if they were to bring in the chickenpox vaccine here, I really don't think I would bother with it.
So was just wondering how many of gave the chickenpox vaccines to your kids, also whether where you're from has an impact on how you view chickenpox, obviously I know it CAN in rare cases be fatal, but on the whole, I just see it as a mild childhood illness.
(if that all makes sense, I'm knackered today!)
