Varicella

Varicella

What is it?
Two doses for varicella (chickenpox).

Why?
This is caused by the varicella zoster virus. Chickenpox is very contagious and spreads very easily from infected people. The virus can spread from either a cough or sneeze. It can also spread from the blisters on the skin, either by touching them or by breathe in in these viral particles.
