Hi,

I'm 34 and never had the CP. I'm getting the vaccination this week, so I'll be protected. However I learned that you have to say away from pregnant women, kids, and immuno-suppressed people for up to six weeks. My brother has never had CP either, and I'm supposed to get together with him this weekend. Can a normal healthy adult get CP from a recently immunized person?

Thanks
