We have now started to contact all our eligible patients to book in for their Shingles vaccination. Please only contact the surgery if you have received an invite.
From 1st September 2023, the vaccine programme is being offered to the following:
You will remain eligible for the shingles vaccine until your 80th birthday, unless you have a weakened immune system; people with a severely weakened immune system remain eligible for vaccine. The sooner you have the vaccine, the earlier you will be protected.
The programme is being extended gradually, starting with those at highest risk, as recommended by the Joint Committee Vaccination Immunisation (JCVI). Over the next 10 years, the programme will eventually include all those from 60 years of age.
Individuals aged 50 years or over with a severely weakened immune system are already eligible for the Shingrix vaccine.
