    Certainly not by the respiratory route.
    Not by any route. Chicken pox is not transmitted via week-old lollipop.

    OP what about an MMRV booster? That would contain the varicella vaccine. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to get a booster of the others, since it's probably been over 20 years since your last dose.
    Per the CDC:

    Anyone 13 or older who needs protection from these diseases should get MMR and varicella vaccines as separate shots.

    I am not arguing with you about transmission by lollipop. I was simply pointing out that varicella is not solely an airborne disease.

    Thanks for all the info guys! FINALLY, I found a doctor that offers the shot and is willing to give it to me. It's $300, since I don't have insurance and I am paying out of pocket, which is insane. It's $150 for the office visit, and $140 for the vaccine. Jeez. My appointment is Monday afternoon, at a clinic over 2 hours away. What a hassle, but I'll just be glad to have it over with (at least, after I return in 4 weeks for the booster).

    Glad that you finally solved the problem!
    I paid the same price and it was in a public clinic here in Ca. It was the only vaccine that was expensive and not offered for free even by public clinics....All other vaccines I found for free or for very low cost at various clinics..
