According to the CDC website, the vaccine has only been 100% proven for 2 years, however, "many clinical trials showed that a child with 2 doses was protected up to 10 years and the risk did not decrease over time."  Here is the link.

Hmm no clue since I think dd got the vax for chicken pox after age 2.  I am not sure though, I would have to look it up.

I've never heard this. My cousin has had the vaccine and 2 mild cases of the chicken pix since. I don't have immunity to it. I've had them twice and the measles three times. You'd think we were blood, but he's adopted. The point is that vaccine is only supposed to prevent the most deadliest/ dangerous forms. You can still get mild cases. Oh and another note. Both my boys got the measles days after getting their vaccine, which I then got after my oldest.

I have no idea. My son got the chicken pox before getting the booster shot. It was mild though.

I never heard that. I know my son had to get a second dose of it, apparently they do 2 now? He had one at around a year old, one at like 4 before he went into kindergarten

 No clue.  I know that they now have a booster in addition to the initial vax at 12 months.

Neither of my boys have had chicken pox, I had it back in 1970-something and got it from my cousin who got it from his cousins on the other side of the family. We all had it at the same time, I couldn't imagine going though that with my kids.

My son didn't get the chicken pox vaccination so I have no clue. He has been exposed to the chicken pox 3 times so far and has of yet to get them.

It's not an effective vaccine, and that's ok because chicken pox isn't that bad for most people.

What's not so cool is that the chicken pox vaccine is causing painful cases of shingles in young people, and when it's not causing shingles, it is delivering a whammy of neurotoxins. This vaccine has been proven ineffective, however it does come with a basket full of potential harms. Ask your Dr. about it, but remember that vaccines are their bread and butter and do your own research too.
