1st of all, no vaccines are "required" for a child to enroll in public schools: this should be made clear in headlines and titles. If a person chooses not to have their child vaccinated (and there are a number of compelling reasons not to), the child may attend class unless their is an outbreak. Also, I'm not quite sure what the chicken pox vaccine has proved. The 3 children who exposed my 2 children all had the chicken pox vaccine (but all 3 got it anyway, and my children who had not been vaccinated did not get it). I've heard of case after case of friends children who had been vaccinated, but got chicken pox anyway. One fear is that vaccinated children would NOT get it, but would get it as adults when it is much worse.
