I had chicken pox when I was 8. It sucked. I had a belt of pox around my waist that itched so much it made me want to crawl out of my skin. If I had had the opportunity to have a vaccine rather than go through the intense itching, I would have jumped on it. Now there IS a vaccine for chicken pox. Huzzah! It's 85-90% effective, and even if you do catch chicken pox after getting the vaccine, you'll only get a very mild case of it! That's great news, right? Right?? Well...
Unfortunately, some blithering idiots have something against vaccines because another blithering idiot falsified his data to make it look like the MMR vaccine was linked to autism. That wasn't just a little bit of data-massaging, it was outright, bald-faced FRAUD. But some parents still believe that vaccines are bad, so they turn to, well let's say other methods of getting their kids immune to the chicken pox virus.
Some geniuses on Facebook have started forming groups that either look for pox parties (to share the virus, thereby purposefully infecting everyone) or to MAIL A LOLLIPOP THAT AN INFECTED CHILD HAS LICKED. Yes, seriously. What the ever-loving fuck is wrong with these people?
Fortunately, sending diseases through the mail is illegal. I hope these morons go to prison and pick up some colorful diseases of their own.
