Chickenpox Immunity Test
Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a highly contagious viral disease that causes the chickenpox, an itchy blister-like rash that can spread over the entire body. Before the introduction of the VZV vaccine, the disease was once a common infection of childhood.
This test can determine the status of your VZV immunity, which may be the result of either previous exposure to the illness or vaccination.
No special preparation.
