Shingles Vaccination

Shingles can be a very painful and uncomfortable rash on one side of your body. The pain can sometimes continue even after the initial rash has healed, even lasting for years.

Who can have the shingles vaccination?

If you are between 70 to 79 you are eligible to have the free NHS Shingles Vaccination. The NHS do not recommend the vaccination to anyone over the age of 80 as it is deemed to be less effective in this age group.

Where can I get the vaccine?

The shingles vaccination is available privately from your local Day Lewis Pharmacy. For more information pop in and speak to us today.
