    No vericella.it's chicken pox,that is what they told me.

    It's odd that they would do that but it's what I remember , I asked to be sure.I wasn't the only one who had no reaction.

    They treated this like one does with a chicken pox infection.

    No. That story has been completely debunked. It is based on a remarkable case of academic fraud perpetrated on a major science journal.

    The widespread fear that vaccines increase risk of autism originated with a 1997 study published by Andrew Wakefield, a British surgeon. The article was published in The Lancet, a prestigious medical journal, suggesting that the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine was increasing autism in British children.


    The paper has since been completely discredited due to serious procedural errors, undisclosed financial conflicts of interest, and ethical violations. Andrew Wakefield lost his medical license and the paper was retracted from The Lancet.


    Nonetheless, the hypothesis was taken seriously, and several other major studies were conducted. None of them found a link between any vaccine and the likelihood of developing autism.


    Today, the true causes of autism remain a mystery, but to the discredit of the autism-vaccination link theory, several studies have now identified symptoms of autism in children well before they receive the MMR vaccine. And even more recent research provides evidence that autism develops in utero, well before a baby is born or receives vaccinations.

    Chickenpox, also known as varicella, is a highly contagious disease caused by the initial infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV).[1] The disease results in a characteristic skin rash that forms small, itchy blisters, which eventually scab over.[2] It usually starts on the chest, back, and face then spreads to the rest of the body.[2] Other symptoms may include fever, feeling tired, and headaches.[2] Symptoms usually last five to ten days.[2] Complications may occasionally include pneumonia, inflammation of the brain, or bacterial infections of the skin among others.[3] The disease is often more severe in adults than children.[4] Symptoms begin ten to twenty-one days after exposure to the virus.[5] wiki

    Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral disease characterized by a painful skin rash with blisters in a localized area.[1][2] Typically the rash occurs in a single stripe either on the left or right of the body or face.[3] Two to four days before the rash occurs there may be tingling or local pain in the area.[3][4] Otherwise there are typically few symptoms.[3] The rash usually heals within two to four weeks;[1] however, some people develop ongoing nerve pain which can last for months or years, a condition called postherpetic neuralgia. In those with poor immune function the rash may occur widely.[3] If the rash involves the eye, vision loss may occur.[1] wiki
    Diagnosis is typically based on a person's signs and symptoms.[6] Varicella zoster virus is not the same as herpes simplex virus; however, they belong to the same family of viruses.[7] wiki

    "Climate change" is the term that has been used in the scientific literature. "Warming", I think comes from Algore's "An Inconvenient Truth."

    Deniers have pretty much given up on denying warming, and have switched to "yes, getting warmer, but not our fault" or to "yes we're making things warmer, but it would cost too much to do anything to prevent a disaster."

    No such thing as deniers. Since it's a sham. Climate change happens. Always has. Always will. The skeptics have always said this and still say this. Your information is faulty. But go ahead. Google it and find a fake news link.

    So, Barb, what is the difference between a skeptic and a denier?
