My husband noticed he has chicken pox 3 days ago, that same day me and my son went to get vaccines, are we protected against chicken pox?

In brief: Post exposure vax

Post-exposure immunization sometimes helps prevent infection or reduce symptoms if administered shortly after exposure.

In brief: Takes 2 weeks for

vaccine to be effective.
Incubation period is 2-3 weeks. See if you get the chicken pox in 2-3 weeks.
