Warnings

  • Chicken pox is extremely contagious.
  • This only works if you've either been immunized or already had chicken pox in the past as following primary infection. There is usually lifelong protective immunity from further episodes of chickenpox. Otherwise, just stick to the phone and/or computer.
  • If you are under 18, check with your parents before visiting, even if you've previously had chicken pox or the vaccine. Parents want the best for you so respect their decisions.
