Shingles Vaccination

Shingles is a common condition that causes a painful rash. It can sometimes lead to serious problems like long-lasting pain, hearing loss, or blindness. As you get older your risk of getting shingles will rise, so the shingles vaccine is recommended for:

  • All adults currently aged 70 to 79
  • All adults who turned 65 from 1st September 2023

It’s also recommended for people with a severely weakened immune system who are aged 50 or over.

You will remain eligible for the shingles vaccine up to your 80th birthday, so if you haven’t had the vaccine yet you may still be eligible.

If you’re insure about when you will become eligible, please take a look at the chart below.
