Varicella (Chicken Pox)

What is it?

The Varicella vaccine protects against chickenpox. It is not a routinely offered vaccination, but some healthcare workers, such as nurses and doctors, need protection if they are working with people vulnerable to infection. 

Vaccine Schedule

Two doses 4 weeks apart
Booster – not required after a 2 dose course.

Note: Varicella vaccine is a live immunisation. If you require other live vaccinations such as Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR), Shingles vaccine (Zostavax), Yellow Fever or a TB vaccine (BCG) then Varicella vaccine must be given on the same day or separated by 4 weeks.
