In brief: See below:

Becoming infected with chickenpox is much more dangerous to your health than receiving the vaccine to protect you.
Like any medicine, the vaccine can cause side effects, but the risk of serious side effects is extremely low. Signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor to discuss this more if needed.
