Who should get chickenpox vaccine?
Children over the age of 12 months who have never had chickenpox should get vaccinated against this disease. Young children are not the only ones who need chickenpox vaccine. If teens or adults get chickenpox, they have a greater risk of serious complications. If you or your teenager haven’t had chickenpox, talk to your doctor or public health nurse about getting vaccinated.
