Shingles vaccine is available under the national programme for people aged 70-74 and 78 and 79 on 1st of September 2017. If you are eligible, please call the GP Surgery and book appointment with a nurse. The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS if you are aged 80 or over.
You can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year, though many people will find it convenient to have it at the same time as their annual flu vaccination.
