Varicella (Chickenpox) Virus Vaccine is a vaccine. It works by stimulating the body to produce antibodies against the virus that causes chickenpox. This helps to provide long-term protection against chickenpox.
The usual adult dose for chicken pox prevention is two doses 4 to 8 weeks apart.
An extra dose is not recommended however it is unlikely to be dangerous.
You may experience fever and flu-like symptoms and pain at the injection site. Acetominophen will help these symptoms.
Talk to your doctor if you are concerned.
