MEDFORD, Mass. — Just as a measles epidemic at Boston-area colleges seemed to be abating, Tufts University said Wednesday that at least 18 students had come down with chicken pox.

"It's a double whammy. We're monitoring chicken pox and immunizing against measles," said Louise Gazzara, nurse director at the school outside Boston. There is no vaccine for chicken pox.
