VARICELLA (LIVE ATTENUATED)

Information for patients
Drug Information LIVE ATTENUATED VARICELLA VIRUS is a vaccine to help protect adults and children against varicella (chickenpox). Vaccines are used to protect you or your child against infectious diseases. LIVE ATTENUATED VARICELLA VIRUS can be administered to persons 12 months of age or older. It may also be given to persons who have no history of chickenpox, but who have been exposed to someone who has chickenpox. Vaccination within 3 days of exposure may help prevent chickenpox or reduce the severity of disease, resulting in fewer skin lesions and shorter duration of illness. In addition, there is limited information that being vaccinated up to 5 days after exposure may reduce disease severity. As with other vaccines, LIVE ATTENUATED VARICELLA VIRUS does not completely protect all individuals from naturally acquired varicella.
