You have live, attenuated viruses in the chicken pox vaccine.
Chickenpox vaccine prevents, but does not cure, chickenpox. However, chickenpox vaccine can be giving within five days of exposure to reduce the risk of developing the disease….
Like other vaccines, the chickenpox vaccine prevents children fromcontracting the virus that causes chickenpox. Chickenpox isharmless to most children but can be deadly and ca…n lead to thedisease shingles later in life.
A vaccine is the medicine used to prevent specific infections. A vaccination is how the medicine is given to you. "I'm wondering, what are the ingredients in the flu va…ccine." (what are the ingredients in the medicine used for vaccination) "It didn't hurt a bit when that pretty nurse did the vaccination." (administered the vaccine/gave you the medicine)
"a "vaccine" is the thing you get vaccinated WITH.. a "vaccination" is the process of being vaccinated." WRONG the real answer is that vaccinations are naturally weake…ned form of the virus, this was made by edward Jenner and was named vaccination for some stupid latin reason. The vaccine however ( made by Louis pasteur) is an Artificially weakened form of a virus and Louis pasteur named it in honor of edward Jenner's vaccination.
You can get this vaccine from almost any doctor, health care clinic, or pharmacy.
Yes. Because then u can't get the chicken poxs. And that's good! Chicken poxs suck! I imagine. I'm 9 and I had the vaxcine and I hadn't had it. And I never will. So yes get th…e vaxcine! Most people who get chickenpox vaccine have never had chickenpox. The vaccine will give you protection against getting chickenpox.
Yes, there is no harm, although no real benefit, in getting the chickenpox vaccine if you've already had chickenpox. Normally, chickenpox yields lifelong immunity.
Breakthrough chickenpox -- mild chickenpox that may occur in someone who was vaccinated -- typically is much easier than chickenpox in unvaccinated patients. Typically there w…ill be fewer than 50 bumps in breakthrough chickenpox, while chickenpox in unvaccinated patients may have 250 to 500 bumps.
Perhaps. It takes a few weeks for the immune system to build up a protection, so if you are exposed very soon after the vaccine, it is possible.
The recommendations in the US are to get the first dose between 12 and 15 months old, and the second dose between ages 4 and 6 years. It can also be used to prevent infection …if given within five days of exposure. If a child or adult hasn't been vaccinated yet, s/he should get the first dose now, and the second dose at least three months apart if the patient is under 13, and at least four weeks apart for patients 13 and older. If someone has had just one dose, they should get a second dose. See related link for schedules.
Yes, there is a vaccine for chickenpox (medical name varicella) as well as for shingles. Yes. It is called the varicella vaccine.
Some patients who get chickenpox vaccine will have a mild case of chickenpox with very few lesions as a result. A full-blown case is not typical.
Anyone who isn't ill or is chemotherapy can get chicken poxvaccine.

Varicella Zoster is a type of herpes virus that is commonly the cause of chickenpox. The chickenpox vaccine, often called the Varicella vaccine, is a live virus vaccine to pr…otect against chickenpox, as it can be extremely dangerous in adults. As shingles can also result from the same virus, the vaccine protects against that as well.
According to the United States Department of Health and HumanServices, there are 2 types of influenza vaccines - trivalent andquadrivalent.
