The shingles vaccine helps protect against shingles. It's recommended for people at higher risk from shingles, including all adults when they turn 65, those aged 70 to 79 and those aged 50 and over with a severely weakened immune system.
If you turned 65 before 1st September 2023, you will not be eligible for shingles vaccination until you turn 70. Find out more about shingles vaccine eligibility here: www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/shingles-vaccination/
