If you have never had chickenpox before then you should seek medical advice as it can be very severe in adults and in your late teens. This treatment is a pretty recent development and is one of the first to show off the advantages of microcannula compared with sharp tip needles for a practically painless jab.
Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
This final jab is essential if you wish to prevent the development of any of the above conditions, they are all very serious so the fact that they can be prevented with a jab should be a no-brainer, however it is important to remember that this jab must be topped up every three to four years following the advice of your GP.
