Association of Varicella Vaccine Failure w/ Asthma, Steroid Use, Age at Vaccination, and MMR
Just another little thing to think about when it comes to blindly following the status quo when it comes to immunization. I just had a patient yesterday whose four year old got chicken pox. She exclaimed that he was vaccinated!! She now knows from firsthand experience that vaccination does not necessarily equal immunity. However, her son now has a natural immunity to chicken pox and will no longer have to worry when he’s an adult.
