Shingles Vaccination

Shingles Vaccinations 

 If you have ever had Chickenpox, you at risk of developing Shingles. Shingles is a condition that is caused by the reactivation of the Chickenpox virus.  Once you've had chickenpox, the virus stays dormant in your nervous system and later in life can reactivate and cause shingles. It is not fully known what causes the virus to reactivate, but this often occurs may years after the original chickenpox infection.  Shingles tends to occur more often in older people and usually causes a painful rash on one side of the body. If you have any questions about Shingles or the vaccination, please contact the Practice and speak to one of our Practice Nurses Christine or Wendy.

From September 1 2015, the shingles vaccine will be offered routinely to people aged 70 and 78. You become eligible for the vaccine on the first day of September 2015 after you've turned 70 or 78.
