If she has already had the first dose of the chicken pox shot then I would advise you to get the booster shot. Just like many other vaccination shots you need booster shots to protect you long term wise as the protection from the first shot wears off. This is also why we need to have a tetanus shot every 10 yrs to make sure we are protected. If she has already had the first round of the chicken pox shot then she is protected until that wears off.....which then leaves her more vulnerable when she is an adult and more at risk of the chicken pox being more severe.

I'm confused....you got the chicken pox shot for your daughter because of the swine flu scare? This has nothing to do with swine flu. Have I misread your post?
