Chicken Pox (Varicella) Immunisation
Has your child had one or two chickenpox vaccinations? Chickenpox is currently in our area, including children vaccinated against it.
This is because one dose is 80-85% protective against developing any chickenpox, a second dose provides 98.3% protection. More information available here.
We can provide vaccinations for chicken pox privately at Pear Tree Family Practice. We source and transport our vaccines under strict accreditation standards, providing assurance they have been appropriately stored to maintain the cold chain and the vaccine potency.
To book an appointment for vaccination please call 7228 5818 or book online to discuss further with your doctor.
