In the UK we can now privately get the chicken pox vaccine it costs around £300-450 for one injection and you need two. So that would cost £600-900 or more depending on how many children you have and also if you have the money to spare! Mine would cost £1,800 if I got my children vaccinated.
What is chicken pox?
It is a infectious disease which causes a mild fever and a rash of inflamed pimples, which blister and then loose scabs. It mainly effects children.
The signs for chicken pox are
Feeling sick, high temperature, feeling aches, headache and loss of appetite. The usual symptoms are difficulty breathing and signs of dehydration.
So why is there a vaccine for Chicken pox when many children and adults tend to feel unwell for a maximum of a week, the vaccine is a live vaccine and contains a small amount of weakened chicken pox virus and the vaccine stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies that will help protect..It also contains a small amount of DNA
Anybody else feeling a bit wary that you are actually being vaccinated with the live virus of chicken pox and human DNA when in reality you may not even carry the virus. It will apparently help develop the immunity against chicken pox.
Yes people and children could die from chicken pox but this is very rare and work the cases usually involves the children having calpol which stops the fever, which helps the body fighting of infections, not the right diet to help fight the virus. The fever is the body’s way of helping get rid of the virus.
The vaccine contains animal blood from animals which have been killed for meat, the sodium phosphate is used to stop any allergic reactions, there is also human DNA in vaccines.
So my theory is the vaccine isn’t worth doing. Yes it may protect but it may not protect, especially since the death toll without the vaccine has dropped from 20 a year to 2-3 a year and this is before the vaccine program started in the UK.
So please think before you vaccine do your research and make your own choice.
