In brief: Probably ibuprofen
It depends on the reaction.
The most common reaction to varicella vaccine is fever a week or two after the vaccination. A mild chickenpox rash can also occur. These are all normal and not a cause for alarm. Treat with Ibuprofen if needed for a couple of days. If it's a more serious reaction, call your doctor.
