1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes,it's mild

A eaction to chickenpox vaccine would occur about 5 days after the shot.
The patient may get a little chicknpox-like rash around the site of the shot. It is not common, and not serious. The disease if your child is not vaccinate would cause much more uncomfortable symptoms than the possible side effects of the vaccine. So give your child the chickenpox vaccine!
