The chicken Pox and covid19

This statement is with tongue in cheek. Ironic......isnt it. Everyone is concerned for the safety of our parents and grandparents. Remember back when you were a kid and your Mommy said. Send Bobby over to the neighbors to play. Little Johnny has the Chicken Pox. LOL

Yep. You were going to catch that and the measles, any way, so may as well get it over with. Which was true.

Now we have vaccines, and the death rate plummeted for measles. Until these nutball anti-vaxxers bought into the **cow excrement** that it causes autism. WHOEVER started that rumor (fingers point at Russia, and I'm not kidding) obviously had hostile intent.

IIRC, it helped that, not only were you going to get it anyway, but the consequences of getting it as an adult were much more serious than getting it as a child - so the sooner you got it, the safer you would be...
And, once we had a vaccine, it just didn't make sense to be exposed the "traditional" way :-)

You can get Shingles as a consequence of having had chicken pox and there is now a vaccine for that. I just got my first shot for that last week; it was not a fun experience as I was one of the unlucky few to have a number of the side effects. Still, much better than actually getting Shingles.

Does anyone else find it creepy that the entire family of heroes viruses take up residence after the infection in our nervous system? And never leaves?

Creepy?
Screw the nervous system.

We humans have a lot of genes that originally came from viruses. I'm sure those initial contacts were not always good for humans but somewhere along the line we made at least parts of them parts of us.

I had the shingles a couple years back. They were on my head. Easy to hide. But it took me a year to not be bothered with the wind blowing through my hair while while driving in my car.
