Chickenpox Immunization For Babies?
Varicella or chickenpox is a skin disease caused by infection with the Varicella zoster virus which is manifested by the appearance of spots all over the body. These spots are filled with water and if they break there is a risk of infection. Chickenpox if not handled properly will develop into herpes zoster, which is an infection resembling chickenpox with worse manifestations in the nervous system. Therefore it is important to immunize against chickenpox. Vaccination for varicella can be done from the age of 1 year. It is best to vaccinate before entering elementary school, because at the school stage, the transmission of chickenpox is quite large. However, please note that vaccination alone does not guarantee that a person will not get chickenpox. However, by being vaccinated, in addition to reducing the possibility of chickenpox, a person prevents himself from experiencing the bad complications of chickenpox infection, and speeds up the healing of chickenpox. Here we attach an article about the chickenpox vaccine. Hope it is useful.
