Can I take a chickenpox vaccine at 30 years of age?

I am 30 years old and a mother of a 4 year old. I have never got chicken pox but I am worried if my son gets it I will have the infection too. Should I get a vaccine as well?

Yes, you can and should get the Chickenpox vaccine. It is a two dose immunization series for someone your age and the second dose must be 28 days after the initial.
