Who can have a freeshingles vaccination?
The national shingles immunisation programme is recommended for people aged 70 to 79, but is being introduced in phases. If you are eligible your GP surgery may contact you and ask you to book an appointment. You can also proactively ask your healthcare professional about the programme if you think you may be eligible. Vaccination is currently being offered to who are aged 70, 78 and 79, and to anyone in their seventies who was born after 1st September 1942. People who are in their seventies but are not yet eligible for caccination, will be offered the vaccination in future years under the national programme.
