What doctors do know about chickenpox jabs
About the author:

Although policy makers in the US recommend universal vaccination against chickenpox for children over one year old, a modest survey of community doctors in Rochester, New York, suggests that general practitioners don't always agree with this policy

Although policy makers in the US recommend universal vaccination against chickenpox for children over one year old, a modest survey of community doctors in Rochester, New York, suggests that general practitioners don't always agree with this policy.

In this study, a third of the doctors never offered the vaccine to the children in their care. A third believed that chickenpox was a normal childhood illness and 40 per cent believed that universal immunisation might shift the disease from childhood to adulthood (Arch Ped Adolesc Med, 1999; 153: 357-62).
