Why You Might Want the Chicken Pox Vaccine

When we think of chicken pox, we often think “harmless and itchy,” but the CDC warns that it can be deadly. In a new report, they highlight a 2009 chicken pox-related death of a 15-year-old teen that wasn’t vaccinated. They warn that those most vulnerable to chicken pox death are unvaccinated healthy people under the age of 20. Learn more about the chicken pox vaccine at cdc.gov.
