The Chicken Pox vaccine is given as an intramuscular injection into the upper arm and protects against the Varicella-Zoster virus which is the cause of chicken pox.
The Chicken Pox vaccine is given as an intramuscular injection into the muscle of the upper arm. The course requires two separate doses with a gap of 1-2 months between doses.
You will need two doses of this vaccine in order to be fully protected. Following this initial course, no further doses are required.
Following vaccination you may experience a sore, achy or heavy arm due to the injection. There can also be some pain, soreness, redness or bruising at the injection site. Other side-effects include flu like symptoms such as cough, runny nose,  mild temperature, aches and pains, headaches, dizziness, tiredness. In some cases people can also experience a mild chicken pox like rash.

There is a very small chance that some people can be allergic to the vaccine and cause anaphylaxis. This is extremely rare and the risk of this is no different to an allergy to any other medication.
