I had the vaccine back in May and have been very ill with neurological problems and other problems since then. I was in perfect health up until then. I will never get a live vaccine again. I have mentioned it to my doctors however, they give me a blank stare and won't commit to any knowledge of the varicella causing problems. I am going to look up the web site the other person mentions! Can you give more details as the the problem the vaccine has caused you??? Thank you.
