A vaccine to prevent shingles, a common, painful skin disease, is available on the NHS to people in their 70s.

The shingles vaccine is given as an injection into the upper arm. Unlike the flu vaccine, you’ll only need to have the vaccination once and you can have it at any time of the year.

Most people will only need 1 dose, but some people who cannot have the routine vaccine for health reasons will need 2 doses.

The shingles vaccine is expected to reduce your risk of getting shingles. If you do go on to have the disease, your symptoms may be milder and the illness shorter.

If you are 70y or older please call surgery today on: 0208 743 5153 to book your appointment with Practice Nurse for the vaccine.
