Mother describes how her son needed morphine for chickenpox

A mother has called on the government to make the chickenpox vaccination free for all, after her toddler had what she claims was the "worst ever case".

Jasper Allen spent five days in hospital after severe chickenpox sores - which covered his entire body - became severely infected.

His mum Sarah, 36 and from St Neots, Cambridgeshire, wants the vaccination made available free on the NHS.
