  • Varicella (Chickenpox)
  • Vaccine Recommendations

Should serology screening for varicella be done during all pregnancies?

No. Serologic testing for varicella should be considered only for pregnant people who do not have evidence of immunity (reliable history of chickenpox or documented vaccination). Once a person has been found to be seropositive, it is not necessary to test again in the future.
