HealthDay News
The chickenpox vaccine is very effective at preventing the disease, and its protection doesn't wane over time, new research finds. The current study included 7,585 children vaccinated with varicella vaccine in 1995 when they were 2 years old. The researchers followed the children's health for 14 years, looking for cases of chickenpox or herpes zoster, which is more commonly known as shingles. In that group of children, 2,826 also received a booster dose of varicella vaccine between 2006 and 2009.
