The case that *I* know of, the guy NEVER had an active case of the chicken pox. I understand that the pox was dormant in his system according to the CDC, but I grew up with this kid and we all thought it was odd that he never got it when we all did. In fact, we thought he might be magic.

maybe he just had a very mild case as a child, a couple of pox on his butt or something, and never even knew he had them.

or maybe his magic just wore of at a very inopportune time ;)

Vaccines basically just give a light case, so light that it usually doesn't even register with symptoms. So, why couldn't an adult get shingles if they've been vaccinated against chicken pox?

My little sister had chicken pox around age 3 and had shingles when she was in jr high.
