Shingles Vaccination

This is an opportunistic programme and patients who are eligible need to contact the practice to book an appointment.

The ages being invited for vaccination this year are those patients who are aged 70 but not yet 71 on 1 September 2015 and have not previously had a shingles vaccination. Patients who achieved the age of 70 on or after 1 September 2013. Patients aged 78 on 1 September 2015 are also eligible and remain eligible for vaccination until their 80th birthday.

Public Health England initiated the Shingles vaccination in 2013 to reduce the incidence and severity of shingles disease, whilst significantly reducing skin infections and nerve pain. The vaccine hopefully will reduce the unpleasant side effects and offers the best protection available.
