In brief: See below
Getting chickenpox vaccine is much safer than getting chickenpox disease, but side effects can include soreness or swelling at the site of the shot, fever, mild rash, or in rare cases seizures or pneumonia.
A good resource for prevention recommendations and information, including links to detailed vaccine information, is an iphone/ipod/ipad app called my health checklist 2012.
