Yes because vaccines depend on how your immune system works.

In brief: Yes
It is estimated that 85-90% of kids will be resistant to chickenpox after their first dose.
Those who develop wild disease after that dose are protected by partial immunity from the major side effects. Hospitalizations have declined dramaticly & deaths from complications have dropped from 50/yr to essentially zero.
