Shingles Vaccination: Aged 70, 71, 72, 73, 78 or 79? Don't let shingles become a burning issue

If you are aged 70, 71, 72, 73, 78 or 79 you should make an appointment with the practice nurse for a shingles vaccination if you have not already had one.

Useful facts:

  • 90% of adults raised in the UK have had chicken pox.  After chicken pox the virus stays inside the body, and can recur as Shingles later in life.
  • There is a 1 in 4 chance you could develop Shingles at some point in your lifetime.

As you get older you are more likely to develop Shingles.

Shingles can cause a painful rash.  A number of people also suffer burning, stabbing nerve pain that for some can last weeks, months or even years.

The Department of Health now recommends Shingles vaccination for 70, 71, 72, 78 and 79 year olds through a National Immunisation Programme.

Measles: Are you protected?

In view of the national outbreak of measles in the UK, we are in the process of making sure all our patients are fully protected.

All patients above age 10 are recommended to have had 2 doses of MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) to be fully covered.  Please check your records and book an appointment with a nurse at Holbrook Surgery (01403 339818) for the MMR jab if you have not had 2 doses.
