Shingles Vaccination 2014

Posted by Debbie Parrett on 9th September 2014
WERE YOU 70, 78 OR 79 ON THE 1st SEPTEMBER 2014

The Department of Health has introduced a programme aimed at protection against Shingles, which is most common in people aged 70 and over. Because of a shortage of vaccine, it has been decided centrally that, initially, only those people aged 70 on 1st September 2014 will be offered the vaccine as part of the main campaign, and in addition those people aged 78 and 79 on 1st September 2014 will also be offered the vaccine as part of a catch up campaign.

These dates are very fixed, and if, for example, you become 70 on 5th September 2014, you will NOT be eligible, and we will not be supplied with the vaccine for you.

We understand that it is the intention that everybody aged 70 and over will eventually be offered the vaccine, but this may not happen for some time, until more vaccine becomes available.

Please contact the Surgery if you are eligible and make an appointment.
