About the Test
The Chickenpox and Shingles Test measures the level of IgG antibodies in the blood produced in response to VZV, the virus that causes varicella (chickenpox) and herpes zoster (shingles). It’s for those who are unsure whether they have had chickenpox or shingles in the past; require evidence of immunity from chickenpox to attend school or work at a particular job; or are planning an international trip. This test is not appropriate for those who want to confirm whether they have an active chickenpox or shingles infection or check immunity after vaccination.
