Who can take it

Adults and children 1 year or older can protect themselves with the chickenpox vaccine. This vaccine is not included in Sweden's general vaccination programme.

Some children are at more risk of serious illness from chickenpox, including those who have a weak immune system. Children at more risk often have a specialist doctor to plan their vaccinations.

To protect children who are at more risk, it can help to vaccinate their siblings and close friends.

People who have already had chickenpox are immune and do not need this vaccine.

People who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take this vaccine.

Doses and protection

Protection from the chickenpox vaccine is complete after 2 doses. For adults, the second dose is taken 2 months after the first dose. For children aged 1–17, the second dose is taken 1 year after the first dose.

Potential side effects

Most people do not experience side effects from the chickenpox vaccine. Potential side effects are usually mild and temporary.

In 2–3 days after vaccination, potential side effects can include pain and redness, swelling or a small lump where the needle went in. In 5–12 days after vaccination, a side effect can be fever.
