This year a shingles vaccine is being offered to people aged 70. 78 or 79 on 1st September 2014. People aged 70 in 2013/14 who missed getting the vaccine are still eligible this year. If you are in any of these categories an invitation letter will have been sent to you and you can contact reception to book an appointment.
Shingles can be a very painful nerve and skin condition and is more common among older people. There is now a vaccine that can reduce your chance of getting shingles, or, if you do get shingles, it can reduce how severe or long lasting the symptoms can be. If you require more information the NHS leaflet “A Vaccine to Protect Against Shingles” is available from Reception
