The Freude is Particularly Shaden on This One

A US teenager who took legal action against his school after he was banned for refusing the chickenpox vaccination now has the virus, his lawyer says.

[Numbnuts], 18, made headlines last month after he unsuccessfully sued his Kentucky school for barring unimmunised students amid an outbreak.
Meanwhile, RFK, Jr's family has come out and lovingly said that he is nuttier than a jar of peanuts.
We love Bobby. He is one of the great champions of the environment. His work to clean up the Hudson River and his tireless advocacy against multinational organizations who have polluted our waterways and endangered families has positively affected the lives of countless Americans. We stand behind him in his ongoing fight to protect our environment. However, on vaccines he is wrong.

And his and others’ work against vaccines is having heartbreaking consequences. The challenge for public health officials right now is that many people are more afraid of the vaccines than the diseases, because they've been lucky enough to have never seen the diseases and their devastating impact. But that’s not luck; it’s the result of concerted vaccination efforts over many years. We don’t need measles outbreaks to remind us of the value of vaccination.
I think he's a fucking loon.

For most of us it is...

Then around age 60 or later Shingles, the same virus does a repeat. Yes,
there is a vaccine for that too and no one will force him to use that one.
However shingles is painful and tends to be longer lasting that chicken pox.

its better to never get that bug.

Unfortunately, around 60 or later, some people acquire conditions which preclude a live virus vaccine, such as Shingles. So, they are dependent on sufficient herd immunity.

(Transplants, rheumatoid arthritis, and similar require immuno-suppressant medications.)
