Shingles Vaccination Information

From 1 September 2023, all newly eligible individuals will be offered 2 doses of the non-live shingles vaccine Shingrix® instead of Zostavax®.

Shingrix® will be offered to those turning 70 and 65 years on or after 1 September 2023.

Zostavax® will be offered to persons aged between 70 to 79 that were eligible for the vaccination programme before 1 September 2023. Once all stocks of Zostavax® are exhausted, these individuals can be offered Shingrix® if they have not previously been given a shingles vaccine.
