Transcript for Angelina Jolie Explains Why She Must Miss 'Unbroken' Premiere
Now to that surprising health news from Angelina Jolie. Explaining why she has to miss the L.A. Premier of her new film. Unbroken. I found out last night that I have chicken pox. So, I be home. Itching and missing everyone. And I can't believe it because this film means so much to me. Hmm. You saw rich Besser is here. We think of chicken pox as a kids' disease. When adults get the chicken pox, they get more bumps than you do as a child. You're at greater risks of complication. Unless you have the vaccine and you have break-through chicken pox. What do we watch out for as adults? The early signs could be just about anything. Fever and malaise. Then the bumps start. The chest, face, back. Red bumps, then blisters. Then scab over. It takes about a week. Until they're all scabbed over, you're contagious. A lot of people confuse shingles and chicken pox. It's the same virus? Shingles is a reactivation of the virus. Children get two doses of the chicken pox vaccines. All adults born after 1980 have to have two doses as well. Unless you have been shown to be immu immune. Proof of immunity is a doctor diagnosed you, you have a document with two doses. Ask your doctor? And if you're a woman who is thinking about getting pregnant. Get the vaccine. And an outbreak of mumps in the NHL. It's a disease we rarely see it. Causes swelling of your face, your glands. They've seen cases on more than five teams, more than ten players. Mumps tepids to be spread through talking, coughing, sneezing. You can understand how it would spread on a team because of the close contact. How is it spreading across teams. The brutal checking on the ice? The clinching? The incubation period could be week long. This could go on for quite awhile.
