questioning chickenpox vaccine
I have searched past threads & other internet info about this, but am still not sure what to do about vaccinating! Noah may have to attend daycare sometime in the next few months, though I haven't found a pn free one that is also workable at this point& that's a whole other issue [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] I realized that I now need to address the vaccines I put off, such as chickenpox & mmr. He's 20 months now & it seems exposure to chickenpox is more likely than mmr, so I thought I would get him vaccinated tomorrow at a checkup. Then I started doing even more research into it, & now I don't know what to do. He has 'mild asthma'. I read that if a kid with asthma has a bad episode & has to take steroids and then happens to get the chicken pox soon after it can be devastating/deadly. On the other hand, there are negatives & unknowns about the vaccine. So I would appreciate any opinions out there!
