Shingles Vaccination

You are eligible for the shingles vaccine 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.
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.
