I've never had chickenpox and received the first dose of the varicella vaccine 3 years ago. I did a titer this year and discovered that I do not have antibody immunity to it. So I have to start the series again. Is it dangerous to get more than 3 doses of the varicella vaccine?

Varicella Shots
For adults, they should have 2 varicella (chickenpox) shots separated by 1 month to have a valid series if they've never had the disease or their lab work shows that they are not immune.
