Varicella vaccine is used to prevent infection by the varicella-zoster virus, which causes chickenpox. The vaccine is made up of live virus that has been weakened so that it does not cause infection. The vaccine works by exposing your body to the weakened virus, thus allowing your body to produce its own protection (antibodies) against the disease. The vaccine is recommended for anyone over 12 months old who has not had chickenpox.
