Our boy is due to have his Varicella jab soon, and I'm not sure which way to decide. My sister and I both had chicken pox as kids. My sister vaccinated her kids but chose to opt out of the chicken pox jab. Our boy's had most jabs except we opted out of hepB at birth, and rotavirus - both I felt unnecessary.
I know that your centrelink payments are linked to full immunisation but I'm not too bothered about that. I've also been told that the varicella jab will protect you when you are older against shingles - has the varicella jab been around that long that they can prove this?
Just wondering what people think. Yes/No, why? Thanks.
