SHINGLES VACCINATION

There is a vaccine that helps reduce your risk of getting shingles and reduces the severity of symptoms if you develop the disease.

Shingles isn't like other infectious diseases because you don't catch it from someone else. Most of us had chickenpox when we were young, although some of us will not be aware that we've had it. If you did have it then the virus that caused it can stay in your body for the rest of your life without you knowing it is there.  If the virus reactivates it causes a disease called shingles.

Shingles can be very painful and tends to affect people more commonly as they get older. The older you are the worse it can be.  For some the pain caused by shingles can last for many years.

To see if you are eligible for the Shingles vaccination download the attached information sheet. We are not able to routinely vaccination patients outside of the eligibility group.
