In brief: Certainly

If they are exposed, they can get it.

In brief: With vaccines...

...Being given at 12 months, the disease has gotten to be very rare overall, but obviously children too young to get the shot is one of the few risk groups left for chickenpox.

In brief: Not Anymore

Before the vaccine it was very common for infants and children to get chickenpox.
Since the vaccine i don't hear about or see cases of chickenpox.
