Immunisation against Shingles

As you may have heard/read in recent press releases the shingles vaccine (Zostavax) is now being funded by the government for those 70-79 years of age.

We will be conducting Clinics at the surgery specifically for this. Initially there will be a catch up program to capture patients who are about to turn 80 – this will be done by a mail out. If you think you may be eligible please discuss this with your doctor at your next visit and then book in at reception
