Family Practitioner Questions Chickenpox

Can I get the chicken pox vaccine at the age of 28?

I am 28 years old and I have never been affected with chicken pox in my life. My daughter is 3 years old and has just got a bout of chicken pox. Can I get the vaccine now to prevent the infection from coming to me? I already had the vaccine when I was young but I'm not sure which precautions to take.

You should have immunity to chickenpox as you had the vaccine when you were young. No need for further precautions.
