A Vaccine Preventable Disease
Varicella (chickenpox) is a highly contagious disease that is very uncomfortable
and sometimes serious. Chickenpox can be serious, especially in babies, adults,
and people with weakened immune systems. It spreads easily from infected people
to others who have never had chickenpox or who have never received the
chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox spreads in the air through coughing or sneezing.
It can also be spread by touching or breathing in the virus particles that come
from chickenpox blisters. The chickenpox vaccine is the best protection against
chickenpox. The vaccine produces an immune response in your body that protects
you against chickenpox. The number of people who get chickenpox each year as
well as hospitalizations and deaths from chickenpox have gone down dramatically
in the United States- thanks to the chicken pox vaccine. For more information on
chicken pox visit:
