CDC reports latest 2 cases of typhoid-like illness in children with chickenpox

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported another two cases of CoV-19 in New Jersey, bringing the total of cases in children who have had the vaccine to 64.

The CDC has said that the widespread use of the vaccine could account for at least 10 percent of the cases and more than 170 illnesses in New Jersey alone.

Thirty-one of the 64 cases have been considered serious.

The CDC and New Jersey health officials have stressed that more vaccine cases may result in strains of herpes and bacterial meningitis gaining a foothold.

The agency said the increased cases involve a rare form of herpes that has always been associated with vaccines as well as other children who haven’t been vaccinated.

The FDA has warned that vaccine varicella – the part of the chicken pox vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria and polio — could still affect a person if they have not been vaccinated against other diseases they may have also received an at-risk vaccines.

That includes diseases such as measles, mumps, whooping cough, polio and hepatitis B.

The FDA said that the immunity that happens in childhood does not last as long as the immunity provided by a lifetime of protection from a vaccine.
