So I called to get my lab results today (the ones they run on the first visit) because I am a hypochondriac and was worried I have everything! LOL. The Dr. said that I am no longer immune to chicken pox. I distinctly remember having them as a child because I had to cancel my 7th bday party of it . Has anyone else found this? Should I get the booster right away? The Dr. didn't seem too worried and said it's something I could "consider later on" but then I told my hubby he says I should get it ASAP.
no no dont have anything like that til afterward, i needed my rubella jab boosting after my son, but they refuse to do it while pregnant, i may need it again as some women need a rubella boost after every pregnancy and some are fine. x
I'd wait until you talk to your Dr. I don't think it's recommended during pregnancy because it is a live virus vaccine. Just stay away from small children and you should be o.k. If you have kids already get them vaccinated if you haven't already
I had my immunities checked as a preconception check-up and found out even though I was given my jabs for Measles Mumps and Rubella as a child I was no longer immune. They gave me the booster and told me I had to wait 3 months to ttc. AND even though I had just had my period (just finished the day before) they made me take a pregnancy test "just in case." So they take it pretty seriously and wont do it till after baby. Like everyone said just try to avoid it! I'm a teacher, so I feel for you working with children everyday! (I always think about what they could be bringing in!)
