In brief: When Vaccinated?

If you are 39 years of age, i'm not sure you could have had the series as a child in the usa as it wasn't routinely available until 1995.
It was used in asia in 1970's but not here. If I do the math, you were at least 22 years of age in 1995, not childhood age. You couldn't have had chickenpox as kid. Maybe you are remembering other vaccines instead that you received in childhood. Hope this helps!
