Abstract

These recommendations represent the first statement by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on the use of live, attenuated varicella virus vaccine—VAROVAX®—manufactured by Merck and Company, Inc. and licensed in March 1995 for use in healthy persons ≥12 months of age. In addition to presenting information regarding vaccine, this statement updates previous recommendations concerning the use of varicella zoster immune globulin (VZIG) as prophylaxis against varicella (MMWR 1984;33:84-90,95-100).
