hiv and chicken pox
Dec 19, 2006
I just had the chicken pox vaccination. I am 41 yrs old and my doctor and I decided it was a good choice to do it now. my cd4s are at 414 and i won't see any effects in 3 -4 days from what i am told. what are the chances of me getting chicken pox and what could result from it now and down the road?
Response from Dr. Horwath
Your response to the vaccine should be similar to others. You have a relatively healthy immune system based on the numbers you quoted. The vaccine should protect you from getting chicken pox.
