Shingles

Offer of shingles vaccine to all people aged 70, 76 or 77

 

Shingles (also known as herpes zoster) can be a very painful nerve and skin condition and is more common among older people. There is now a vaccine that can reduce your chance of getting shingles, or, if you do get shingles, it can reduce how severe or long lasting the symptoms can be.

Like most vaccinations, it will be given as an injection in your upper arm.  This is a one-off vaccine and you do not need to get it more than once in your lifetime

Supplies are being provided to GP practices to immunise specific groups of patients.  If you are in one of those groups (aged 70, 76 or 77 on 1st September 2016), you are being invited to have your shingles vaccination at your GP practice.  Please make an appointment telling the receptionist that it is for a Shingles injection so we can have the vaccine ready for you if needed.
