Description

This article is from the Childhood Vaccinations FAQ, by Lynn Gazis-Sax lynng@alsirat.com with numerous contributions by others.

3i.0 Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine

[Note: The varicella section has been modified slightly and
updated. Information is from FDA press releases on 1/28/94 and 3/17/95
and and an article in Infectious Diseases in Children newsletter {vol
8(2) February l995}. It has been further updated based on the July 12,
1996 recommendation by ACIP. This section last updated on September
25, 1999. I have some additional information on zoster which I will be
merging into this section in my next update.]
