In this paper, we proposed a fractional SVIR order model to study the transmission dynamics of Chick- enpox. We showed the existence of the equilibrium states. The basic reproduction number of the model was evaluated in terms of parameters in the model using the next generation matrix approach. We provided the conditions for the stability of the disease-free and the endemic equilibrium points. Also a detailed stability analysis of the model was carried out. Also, numerical simulations of the model were carried out using Adams-type predictor-corrector method and the paper provided a theoretical basis to control the spread of Chickenpox.
