I got the first dosage of MMR before my first birthday, what do I do?

You have the option of either checking your titers or receiving a third dosage.

Varicella

If I had Chicken Pox as a child does that mean I am cleared for the Varicella requirement?

I only got the titer for Varicella, is that sufficient?
