Shingles Vaccine

If you are immunocompetent, from 1 September 2023, as you turn 65 or 70 you will become eligible to get the shingles vaccine from your birthday. You will not lose your eligibility and will be able to get the vaccine at any time up until you turn 80. If you turn 65 before 1 September 2023, you will have to wait until you turn 70 to become eligible for the shingles vaccine. If you are immunocompromised, from 1 September 2023, if you are aged 50+ you will be able to get the shingles vaccine and there is no upper age limit to you coming forwards to get the vaccine.
