Shingles 2017

Monday 3rd Jul 2017

Shingles was previously offered to patients aged 70 years with a phased catch-up programme.  From the 1st April 2017, they have simplified the programme – eligibility has changed to the date a patient turns 70 (routine) and 78 (catch-up), see date of birth ranges below.  Although this is now available from April (rather than September each year), practice are encouraged to maintain the existing approach to vaccinating mainly during the flu season so as not to impact vaccine supply.
