In 2009, chickenpox claimed the life of a 15-year-old girl from Ohio three weeks after she was admitted to a hospital for serious complications, CDC officials reported on Thursday. The report found that most hospitalizations and deaths related to chickenpox happened among healthy individuals younger than 20 before the vaccine was introduced in 1995. The findings appear in the agency's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
