Annual Shingles Campaign

Shingles is a debilitating condition, which occurs more frequently and tends to be more severe in older people.
It is estimated that around 250,000 people are affected in England and Wales each year including 30,000 people in their 70s.
We are now offering routine shingles vaccinations (called Zostavax) to patients:
Born between 2nd September 1938 to 1st September 1941 and
Born between 2nd September 1942 to 1st September 1948
The shingles (Zostavax) can be given as a single vaccine or at the same time as the flu and pneumococcal vaccinations where relevant and we are giving the vaccine in our Flu Clinics
To book an appointment please telephone the surgery, but please remember that we are only allowed to give the shingles vaccine to patients in the relevant age groups.
