In brief: Variable

The feds don't make this rule.
At least for now.Each state sets it's vaccine policy as either requirement for entry into daycare or public school facilities or state supported secondary schools.Check with your state health department.

In brief: 1999

I believe it was 1998-99, when they started recommending live virus chickenpox vaccine for children at 1 year of age or above.
