chicken pox

THE LATEST
It is not possible to predict who will have a mild case of chickenpox and who will have a serious or even deadly case of disease.
The MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and Varivax (chickenpox) vaccine have both been licensed and recommended for many years. These vaccines are typically given to children between the ages of 12-15 months, and then again between 4-5 years.
