Vaccination for Varicella (Chickenpox) This vaccine is given mainly to Health-Care Workers who do not have a history of having had a Chickenpox infection in childhood and who test negative for the disease on blood testing. It is also included in Childhood Immunisation schedules in the USA. Two doses of the vaccine given at least one month apart leads to life-long immunity. Cost of vaccine is 70 euro per shot.
