Don’t get caught out! For some patients, catching shingles can cause serious or life threatening complications, even if they feel well before hand.
That’s why eligible patients are offered a free shingles vaccination as they have a greater risk of serious complications should they catch shingles.
The eligible patient groups include:
- Patients aged between 70 and 80, excluding patients aged 77 1/2 years old.

Book your appointment, along with your flu vaccination, by simply calling the surgery from September on 01503 266960 and remember the sooner you are immunised, the sooner you are protected.
Alternatively, if you decide you do not wish to have the shingles vaccination this year, please advise the surgery so that we can update your patient records or fill out the electronic decline form below.
