chickenpox Vaccinations

Chickenpox Vaccination Clinic in Maida Vale

The chickenpox vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect you or your child against chickenpox. It is given as two injections, usually in the upper arm or thigh.

The vaccine contains a small amount of the weakened (attenuated) varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox. This isn’t enough virus to give you chickenpox but is enough for your immune system to develop a defence (antibodies) against the virus. Your immune system remembers these antibodies and can produce them again, making you resistant to the virus.

Who should have the chickenpox vaccine?

The vaccine is recommended for people who are not immune to chickenpox and are in close contact with people at risk of becoming seriously ill if they catch it.
