If you're never sick, how will you learn to cope with being uncomfortable?

the pox vaccine doesn't inoculate you against colds or toothaches or scraped knees. IMO kids have enough opportunity to suffer without getting chickenpox.

Anyone at risk for death should *of course* be vaccinated,

the problem with this line of thinking is that it is not only "unhealthy" kids that can get really sick or even die from chickenpox. sometimes perfectly healthy people suffer worse than most from "safe" illnesses like chickenpox.
