The Possibility Of Chicken Pox As An Adult After The Vaccine?
Good night, if you had the smallpox vaccine when you were a child, especially when you were vaccinated when you were large?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Chickenpox (varicella) vaccine is given to provide protection against chickenpox. This vaccine is recommended to be given to children and adults who have never had chickenpox, and have never had chickenpox vaccination. Therefore, answering your question, if you have had chickenpox as a child, of course you no longer need to get this vaccine as an adult, because by experiencing chickenpox, your body automatically has developed immunity to the disease.
The optimal chickenpox vaccine is given in 2 doses. The CDC recommends giving the chickenpox vaccine for the first time when children are 12 to 15 months old. Then, after children aged 4 to 6 years, a second dose can be given to provide more optimal protection.
Please consult directly with your doctor, pediatrician, or specialist in internal medicine related to this matter ...
I hope this helps.
