For those of you not opting to get the chicken pox vax, are you taking your LO to a pox party to deliberately expose them, waiting until they're older and then test for natural immunity, or what's the plan?

The pedi says we'll have to have it 6 months before starting preschool and we were considering half day pre-school around 2 or 2.5. I think in Oregon I can just say we have chosen not to vax but it still made me wonder what our long-term plan is.

Ok so I just saw the chicken pox thread. I guess I should search first next time. I'm still wondering what is the ideal age to get pox. Is 2 too early?

I am not sure of the ideal age. My opinion is to see if she gets exposed to it (via blood test if no obvious exposure) by 14-ish to skip the vax, otherwise consider the vax.

yup...if our kids dont have it by 12-14 we'll consider the vax. 2 is fine...

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Depending on whether I'm pregnant then, I'm hoping DS gets it after 2. If someone I know has a kiddo with pox then I'll expose him, I haven't decided whether to seek out a pox party. If he hasn't had it by 14ish then we might have to consider the vax.
