Hello there. 2 shots of vaccination to varicella is about 98% effective at preventing chicken pox, so you don't need another shot. Don't be worried. But take all the precautionary measures and stay away from all of his stuff, get everything cleaned properly, wash all the beddings and dry in sun. Regards
