Since there has been discussion about chicken pox and live vaccines...
A while back I was told that for my son's next round of vaccinations, he will get a live vaccine. I was told to stay away from them, but I am the only one who can take him to his Dr visit. I have some questions.
- Do all children's vaccines come in an inactive form? (The office seemed to be against giving anything else but live).
- If someone else is able to take him, do I have to avoid being near him? If so, how long?
- Why can't people with CML be near live vaccines (esp. if in CP where their immune systems are supposed to be OK)?
