Chicken pox: If you didn't get 2 doses of vaccine, you might not be protected!
A student (undergraduate) was diagnosed with chicken pox at the Health Service last week.
Cases occurring from exposure to that student might turn up later this week (usually they occur 10-21 days following exposure.)
Although many in the US are immune to chicken pox, sporadic cases still occur throughout the year. You could get exposed at the grocery store, the movie theater—anywhere people get together in public.
