When my son turned one I had thought about not doing the chicken pox vaccine but ended up doing it since our daughter had and the doctor assured us it was the "right" thing to do. While last week (he's 15months) he was really sick with bronchitis and then got a bizzar rash on his leg which was pretty alarming to his GI doctor so we went to see a dermotlogist in boston and he ended up having shingles. Since the virus is a live viruse it stays in the body and your child can still get shingles. For him it was because his immune system was weakened with the cold it allowed the viruse to rear its ugly head in the form of shingles. Which is pretty painful our little guy couldn't even walk right =( He is doing better now, but I had never thought that he could have gotten shingles being so young.

Sorry about your little guy. Shingles is very painful and does rear it's ugly head especially when immunities are down. I hope he gets to feeling better soon.

Oh how terrible! We opted not to get the pox vax. I may change my mind later, but I doubt it. We got all the others.

This is quite common with the chicken pox vaccine.

But on the other side of not vaccinating....my 20 month old broke out in Chicken pox (this was before the vaccine was offered) the day I came home from the hospital with his new brother. So not only was I busy with a newborn and a sick toddler, I was worried that the baby would get it. Luckily he did not. I have had my other kids immunized on schedule and so far no shingles...(knock on wood)
