Shingles and Shingles Vaccinations

You can be offered the shingles vaccine (Zostavax) as soon as they reach the eligible age (70-79 plus 364 days).

You can be immunised at any point in the year.

If you are 50 or over and have a weakened immune system (severely immunocompromised), you are also eligible for the shingles vaccine (Shingrix, which is in 2 doses instead).

If you are eligible, haven’t had your vaccination yet, and would like to have it, please contact the surgery to enquire/book your vaccination.
