Shingles Vaccine

You are eligible for the shingles vaccine under the NHS if you are aged 70 or 78 years old.  In addition, anyone who was eligible for immunisation in the previous three years of the programme but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday. This includes:

  • people in their 70s who were born after 1 September 1942
  • people aged 79 years

The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS to anyone aged 80 and over because it seems to be less effective in this age group.

If you are not eligible and are over 50 and would like the vaccine, please contact the pharmacy to make an appointment the cost is £130.00.

All other vaccines see under travel vaccinations.
