Does ACIP recommend giving varicella vaccine to infants before age 1 year if they are traveling internationally?

No. ACIP recommends giving a dose of MMR to infants age 6 through 11 months before international travel, but not varicella vaccine. Varicella vaccine is neither approved nor recommended for children younger than age 12 months in any situation.
