Chickenpox is not a serious illness but it can be very uncomfortable for children as the symptoms include flu-like symptoms and a very itchy rash. As chickenpox is not a serious illness and children only usually get the illness once, immunisation is not routinely available on the NHS. If you are concerned that your child (or yourself) is at risk of catching a serious illness as a result of chickenpox then speak to MUMS Medical regarding Vaccination.

Chickenpox (medically known as Varicella) is caused by a virus called the Varicella Zoster virus. It spreads quickly through the coughs and sneezes of someone who is infected. If you are in close contact with somebody with a weakened immunity system the vaccine can also be recommended.

The vaccine is given as two separate injections, usually into the upper arm, four to eight weeks apart. One dose of Varilrix (Chickenpox vaccine) may be administered after a first dose of another Varicella containing vaccine. If you're pregnant you should not have this vaccine.
This can be administered from one year of age through to adults.

Two doses should be given, with an interval between doses of at least 6 weeks but in no circumstances less than 4 weeks.

One dose of Varilrix (chickenpox vaccine) may be administered after the first dose of another varicella-containing vaccine.

If you are pregnant you should not have this vaccine.
