An anti-vax mom and 'nurse' wanted to hand out chickenpox-infected lollipops on Halloween

By

Chickenpox parties were far more common before the chickenpox vaccine became widely available in 1995. But they've been making a comeback recently, and earlier this year, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin made headlines when he said that he exposed his nine children, all of whom are unvaccinated, to neighbors with chickenpox in order to help them gain immunity to the disease.   

But one unidentified mom recently took the idea of chickenpox parties way too far when she suggested that she was going to hand out chicken pox-infected lollipops this Halloween.  

The woman reportedly made the claim on a private anti-vax Facebook page, where she stated that it was all actually in goodwill.
