Syringe Varicella vaccine schedule!

Hi all:

I do not understand that in kaplan lecture note:

Varicella second dose is given at 4~6 years of age.

One dose for children 12 years and younger, and two doses(seperated by 4~8 weeks) for > 12 years of age.


Can someone please explain this, sorry if i kept asking questions, maybe it is my problem, but i really found kaplan pediatirc lecture note is hard to read for me.

Thank you!

Check out CDC page for vaccination schedules, maybe that's a little bit more easy to understand. Good luck.

Default Varicella vaccine schedule from CDC

Thank you Evavar : )

I found this from CDC:

Children who have never had chickenpox should get 2 doses of chickenpox vaccine at these ages:
1st Dose: 12-15 months of age
2nd Dose: 4-6 years of age (may be given earlier, if at least 3 months after the 1st dose)
People 13 years of age and older (who have never had chickenpox or received chickenpox vaccine) should get two doses at least 28 days apart.



But there is still one part i do not understand from kaplan lecture note:

One dose from children 12 years and younger, does this purely mean that they just need one shot and that is it?
