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.
Can varicella vaccine be used as postexposure prophylaxis for a 9-month-old who was exposed to herpes zoster?
Varicella vaccine is neither approved nor recommended for children younger than age 12 months. Assuming that the child is not immunocompromised, varicella zoster immune globulin (VariZIG, Emergent BioSolutions Inc.) is also not recommended. If the child had a condition which was considered to place the child at greater risk for complications than the general population, then VariZIG could be considered (see the Varicella Immune Globulin section below and www.cdc.gov/mmwr/pdf/wk/mm6228.pdf, page 574).
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) does not have a recommendation for acyclovir as varicella postexposure prophylaxis, although the American Academy of Pediatrics does provide some guidance on this issue in the 2015 edition of the Red Book.
