János Kozma Pediatrician Prescribes Pediatric Vaccine Protection at a Funeral HospitalThe vaccination costs money in the first place (more than 8000 HUF per dose), it is not one of the compulsory vaccinations. In contrast, in the EU-8 it is part of the vaccine system.
The vaccine contains varicella-zoster virus, which is actually a varicella pox. It can be given from 9 months of age, up to 12 years of age, in 2 doses; For 13-year-olds, there are 2 doses in 2 doses, omitting 6-10 weeks between doses.
Usually the doctor gives you the upper arm. Pregnant women should not inject. In the case of a planned pregnancy, if the expectant mother has not yet fallen into the varicella, it is worth giving the vaccine, as varicella that is caught within 9 months is very dangerous to the fetus.
As with any vaccine, full protection is not guaranteed. Certainly, the course of the disease in a vaccinated person is much milder.
