Most common side effects include: •injection site reactions (such as redness, pain, or swelling) -- in up to 32.
5 percent of people •fever -- up to 14.7 percent •a chickenpox-like rash -- up to 5.5 percent. Most people tolerate the vaccine quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your doctor.
