My 15mo dd currently has chicken pox and the doctor rang today to confirm it. He left a message on dh phone saying yes it's chicken pox and she will still need her vax at 18 months. Does this sound right?

Chickenpox vax after chickenpox?

Incorrect. Doesn't need the vax if she's had the disease.

Just get it documented in her blue book by the physician that she has history of infection for when you need to show vax records (childcare/school).

She will still need the MMR part of the vaccination.

You can still get the MMR vax without the chicken pox vax in it.

Its not going to do her any harm to have it if your GP only stocks the MMRV vax.
I'm not sure if the government took the MMR off the NIP or not. I know they did take the chicken pox one off so we have to pay for it now (I'm a vaccinator) in our clinic. Before I left for mat leave they hadn't taken the MMR but that could have changed.
Your GP should have MMR on it's own for adults though but if it's off the NIP he might charge you.
In which case I'd just get the MMRV.

She doesn't need a vax if she's already had them my DD1 caught them at 8 months old and never needed the vax
Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3

They are definitely in the processing of swapping MMR over to MMRV, if she MMRV she won't be harmed and it won't be an extra needle or anything.

No it doesn't sound right. My DD had them at 17 months and didn't require the vax.
