Two Teens Contract Meningitis from Chickenpox Vaccine

According to a study, published in the journal Pediatrics, both teens had received the recommended two doses of the chickenpox/ varicella vaccine as children. Previous cases of the virus reactivating and causing meningitis years after vaccination – a phenomenon known as vOka varicella – have been reported in children who received just one dose of the vaccine. Meningitis may lead to (in severe cases) to convulsions, delirium, and death.
