Chicken Pox Vaccine Update - Chicken Pox Booster Dose Many experts and parents are very happy with Varivax, the chickenpox vaccine. Before the chickenpox vaccine began to be routinely given in 1995, chickenpox was a very common childhood illness, that even when it wasn't serious, still left children miserable for at least a week. And unfortunately, sometimes these chickenpox infections did become serious, leading to hospitalization and even death. In the United States, before routine use of the chickenpox vaccine, 'there were an average of 4 million cases of varicella that resulted in 10,500-15,000 hospitalizations and 100-150 deaths every year,'1 many of which occurred in children. Now that Varivax is routinely used, there has been 'a substantial decrease in incidence'2 of chickenpox and its complications.

Just Because It is True Doesn't Make It the Truth. — Graham Cooke. There is always a higher level of truth than the facts.

Second Chicken Pox Shot Boosts Coverage By Nathan Seppa, Science News Two are better than one when it comes to chicken pox vaccinations, scientists report January 5 in The Journal of Infectious Diseases. The chicken pox shot, first made available in the United States in 1995, has already proved able to prevent the disease in about 80 to 85 percent of children who get a single dose. In 2006, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics jointly recommended a two-shot approach, suggesting that children get the doses four to six years apart. The new study supports this revision: Adding another shot ups disease prevention to nearly 100 percent. Pediatrician Eugene Shapiro of Yale University School of Medicine and his colleagues identified 71 children who had contracted chicken pox between 2006 and 2010, verifying the diagnoses with tests showing viral DNA in skin lesions on the kids.

Brian Tracy University Brian, you have changed my life. I am now a millionaire on the way to earn more through more sales. You’re the best. – Phila Awesome advice. Ben Casnocha Over the past year, Felix Salmon of Reuters wrote a masterful five-part series on the economics of content online. Worth reading for anyone interested in the topic. I link to each part below and excerpt my favorite paragraphs (all Salmon’s words, but emphases are my own). Part 1: Advertising Do advertising dollars ultimately end up where people spend their time, he asked, echoing Kleiner Perkins’ Mary Meeker says, or, pace Bernstein Research’s Todd Juenger, is that a “fallacy”? I’m with Juenger on this one.
