Shingles Vaccination

A vaccine is available to those in their 70s to prevent shingles which can be extremely painful.   It is a single vaccination and, unlike the flu vaccination which is given annually, you only need one vaccination ever. 
We write to those people who are eligible for the vaccine but if you are in your 70s and have not had the vaccine, please contact us to check whether this should be given. 
Further information is available on NHS Choices.
