Lock Jaw, Diphtheria and Whooping Cough vs. shot? Lock Jaw is pretty painful.

"Complications include spasm of the vocal cords and or spasms of the respiratory muscles causing interference with breathing. Other complications include fractures of the spine or long bones from stiff muscles, elevated blood pressure, abnormal heartbeats, coma, generalized infection, clotting in the blood vessels of the lung, and pneumonia. Death occurs in about 11 percent of all cases, especially in persons 60 years of age and older and unvaccinated individuals." ~ OUCH

These shots start today and they will be required for school.

If your child has had chicken pox they will not need that vaccine. I had chicken Pox at the tender young age of 35. I wish they had a vaccine, it was awful.

People do die from secondary infections that start with chicken pox.
