Shingles

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:

  • People in their 70s who were born after 1 September 1942

Book your appointment, along with your flu vaccination, by simply calling the surgery from September 1st 2017 on 01503 266960 (after 14:30) 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.
