Write-up: I am reporting this only since I think there is a slight labelling problem: Last August, my medical assistant administered Merck''s Varicella Vaccine to an adult who was intended to get the Zostavax. There were no ill effects, but I sustept if the adult vaccine (14-fold more concentrated) had been given to a child...there might have been significant Side effects. I reported this to Mercks online site $g60 days ago but they never acknowledged the problem. The problem I believe could be corrected by having the box and bottle clearly labelled "FOR ADULTS ONLY" or "FOR PEDIATRICS ONLY".
