Humoral and cellular immunity to varicella-zoster virus: an overview

, : Humoral and cellular immunity to varicella-zoster virus: an overview. Journal of Infectious Diseases 197 Suppl 2: S58-S60

As with most live attenuated viral vaccines, varicella vaccine comprises a mixture of variant strains. Knowledge about the pathogenic potential of individual strains in the varicella vaccine is limited. Vaccination against chickenpox causes a usually modified varicella-like rash in a small percentage of healthy children, and vaccine virus reactivates on rare occasions to cause herpes zoster (HZ).
