Shingles Vaccination

Shingles vaccinations will also take place for patients who are 70, 78 or 79 this year.  If you are eligible you will receive an invitation for this vaccination and will be able to have your flu vaccination at the same time if you wish.

Please note that if you would like to have your shingles vaccination, you will have to book an appointment for this during the week as we are unable to provide this on any of our Saturday clinics.
