Weird question...

I know this may seem like a weird one but just because kids get the chicken pox vaccine doesnt mean that they will not get the chicken pox, right? I have a 5 yr old and am curiuos because I know that time will come when he will be exposed to it. Just want to mentally prepare myself for what may happen. Thanks for any responses!

Yes, that is true. They can still get chicken pox even though they get the vaccine. The vaccine just keeps it from being a bad case of it if they do get it. But getting the vaccine greatly reduces their chances of contracting chicken pox.
