If you had a baby and your older children had students absent from their class due to chicken pox, would you keep them home even if they were immunised to prevent exposure to your non-immunised baby?

Chicken pox - Would you keep your school aged children at home?

I would yep. Those nasty little buggers got me twice even though I was immunised and all my siblings too and they were all immunised. And now I have scars on my skin from them.. :/
Plus if I had a baby I would be so careful what he/she got exposed to. Better to be safe than sorry

I would suspect they might already be exposed. I'm not sure I would keep them home. How many students? And is it specifically their class?
Also how long would you keep them away for? Not sure on the schools stance for absentee unless not sick.

Yes for on the safe side

Depending on age of bub. But probably not.
I think the more contagious period is before the pox appear?

I wouldn't, but mainly because my DD's school would be grilling me over it. I wouldn't be happy about it though.

Turns out my eldest has suspected chicken pox anyway. She's immunised so hopefully will recover quickly. I guess it's a wait and see for the little one now
