Shingles

The shingles vaccine helps protect against shingles.

It’s recommended for people at higher risk from shingles, including all adults turning 65, those aged 70 to 79 and those aged 50 and over with a severely weakened immune system.

The current Shingles vaccination programme adverts and promotion have proved to be quite confusing with people believing they are already eligible when they are not yet.

Please see the attached chart to see when you are eligible for you shingles, and see the guidance here if you are not eligible yet.
