About the Chickenpox Vaccine & Potential Side Effects
The chickenpox vaccine, as its name implies, is intended to prevent the vaccinated individual from contracting chickenpox. This highly contagious disease causes blister-like, itchy rashes all over the infected person’s body, in addition to fever and fatigue. This can be extremely dangerous for pregnant women, children, babies, and people with weak immune systems.
Due to the extremely contagious nature of the varicella/chickenpox virus, children typically receive two doses of the vaccine: once between 12 and 15 months of age and another between 4 and 6 years old. Although it is rare, this vaccine can cause serious side effects in certain individuals.
Some potential side effects of the chickenpox vaccine include:
- Low blood count
- Severe brain reactions
- Seizure (jerking or staring) caused by fever
- Life-threatening allergic reaction at the injection site
- Swelling, redness, or soreness (which may be severe)
- Bumps or skin rashes, which may be contagious and last up to a month after vaccination
