Chickenpox is a highly contagious viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). It manifests as an itchy, blister-like rash that typically starts on the chest, back, and face before spreading to the entire body. The virus spreads through coughing, sneezing, and direct contact with an infected person or contaminated surfaces. Vaccination is the best prevention measure, and while it’s not part of routine childhood immunization, Care Pharmacy offers it as a private service.

Chickenpox can affect individuals of all ages, but it’s most frequently contracted during childhood. Certain groups, like pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems, face a heightened risk of complications if they contract chickenpox.

Yes. Care Pharmacy offers convenient same-day appointments. Easily schedule your appointment online and view all available timeslots to choose the one that best fits your schedule.

Children under two get vaccinated in the thigh, while those over two get vaccinated in the upper arm. Wear loose clothing for easy access. Before vaccination, the healthcare professional discusses possible side effects. The vaccine contains a small amount of live virus, so avoid contact with at-risk individuals for six weeks after each dose, particularly if a rash develops within that period. Serious complications can occur if at-risk individuals contract chickenpox.

In most regions, including Leeds and Bradford, around 9 out of 10 children vaccinated with a single dose develop immunity against chickenpox. Opting for two doses further enhances the immune response. However, the effectiveness of the vaccination decreases in adulthood, with roughly three-quarters of vaccinated teenagers and adults becoming resistant to chickenpox.

Common side effects of the chickenpox vaccine may include soreness and redness around the injection site, a mild rash, and a temporary increase in temperature. Serious side effects are rare, and evidence suggests no heightened risk of long-term health conditions due to vaccination.

The chickenpox vaccine operates as a “live vaccine,” containing a weakened form of the chickenpox-causing virus. It prompts the immune system to generate antibodies, offering protection against chickenpox.

While uncommon, chickenpox can recur multiple times, though the likelihood diminishes after the initial infection.

Chickenpox vaccinations are provided free of charge through the NHS to individuals with a clinical need, such as healthy individuals who lack immunity to chickenpox and are in close contact with immunocompromised individuals.
