Shingles Vaccination Information Posted on 4 May 2016

From September 1 2015 the shingles vaccine is routinely available to people aged 70 and 78. 

In addition, anyone who was eligible for immunisation in the first two years of the programme but has not yet been vaccinated against shingles remains eligible until their 80th birthday. This includes:

  • people aged 71 and 72 on 1 September 2015
  • people aged 79

You can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year, though many people will find it convenient to have it at the same time as their annual flu vaccination. If your birthday falls within the following date ranges then you are currently eligible for the vaccine and can book an appointment;

02/09/1935 – 01/09/1936 = 79 years old

02/09/1936 – 01/09/1937 = 78 years old

02/09/1944 – 01/09/1945 = 70 years old

02/09/1943 – 01/09/1944 = 71 years old

02/09/1942 – 01/09/1943 = 72 years old
