1 Answer:

Hello Indahrd,

Smallpox immunization aims to prevent chickenpox, even if infected, it is hoped that the symptoms will appear much lighter than those who are not immunized, prevent more dangerous complications, and the risk of transmission is also smaller, for example less pox nodules, heal faster, and reduce fever when smallpox.

Smallpox immunization or varicella immunization is enough to be given once when a child is 1-13 years old. If given at the age of more than 13 years, the immunization is given 2x with a distance of 4-8 weeks.

Someone who gets smallpox immunization will have immunity to chickenpox and effectively prevent chickenpox infection by 85%. Even if you end up contracting and being infected with chickenpox, generally the condition will be lighter and get better sooner.
