Q.

chicken pox vaccine

Would you recommend this vaccine for babies? Mine is turning a year old. I heard from my friend that at the clininc she goes to she was told that it is a good idea to give the vaccine to babies as they can get very sick. from it However, the clinin I use advised me that its probably better for babies to get chicken pox while they are still young. What do you say?

It is worthwhile getting your baby immiunised against chicken pox. Your baby is at the right age to have the chicken pox vaccine.
