The Varicella Vaccine
While no vaccine is 100% effective in preventing disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the varicella vaccine is very effective and only 10% of those vaccinated will still be infected with the varicella zoster virus (chickenpox).
Chickenpox is a disease which causes fever and an itchy rash. The skin rash covers the body but it is usually more concentrated on the face, scalp and trunk. The transmission of this virus is spread by coughing and sneezing.
The CDC recommends that all children and adults without evidence of immunity to varicella, need to be vaccinated.
