They can get it if they have not been immunized against it, or if their immunization fails for some reason.  There are some immunizations that need to be repeated a little later in life, like around age 11 or 12.

If your child was immunized against chicken pox for sure and is still younger than 3, and you are seeing a rash, it is probably not chicken pox.  There are a lot of other rashes kids can get, from Fifth Disease to Impetigo to Thrush.  You might google "child rash" and see some of the descriptions.
