No, you didn’t, Nicole. No.
Or if some stupid client told you that, then the client is as dumb as you are.
No doctor ever told anyone that. Ever. They haven’t because it is impossible.
Here’s the deal. Chicken pox is the primary disease caused by the varicella zoster virus. After you have it, the virus buries itself in your nerve cells and just sits there doing nothing, until something rouses it and then you get shingles.
Shingles is always preceded by having had chicken pox. I don’t care about your Aunt Matilda’s anecdote about her cousin Billy. It is entirely possible to have had chicken pox and not really know that you had it.
When I was a child, I had chicken pox. My mother used to laugh about it (there was no vaccine then) and say that I had one pox. That’s just about the truth. I had a very light case, and was barely sick.
But it was enough. Years later, I got a nice case of shingles. I assure you that you don’t want it. That very mild, almost-not-noticeable case of chicken pox set me up for a nasty bout of shingles later on.
It is true that if you have shingles, it’s possible for you to pass the virus to somebody who has never had chicken pox or been vaccinated, for instance, your granddaughter who is too young to be vaccinated. The child, if infected, will develop. . . chicken pox. Not shingles.
But it is impossible, completely and totally impossible, to get shingles from some kid’s chicken pox vaccine.
Furthermore, the chicken pox vaccine is attenuated. Nicole, honestly, hon, look up that word. Figure out what it means, because you really do not have a grasp of it at all.
