Shingles Vaccination

Posted on September 5th, 2023

Shingles vaccination

 

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:

  • Healthy people aged 70 to 79 years who have not yet been vaccinated.
  • People aged 50 years and over with a severely weakened immune system.
  • Healthy people aged 60 to 70 years will become eligible for the vaccine over the next 5 years, when they turn 65 or 70 years.

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.
