Shingles Vaccination

Shingles is an infection of a nerve and the skin around it. It is caused by the same virus as chickenpox and causes painful blisters on the skin.

In Scotland around 7000 people aged 70 years and over get shingles every year. There is a vaccine that can reduce your risk of getting shingles (also known as herpes zoster), or, if you do get shingles, it can reduce how serious the symptoms will be.

For more information about shingles, the vaccination and eligibility, please click on the link - Immunisaton Scotland - Shingles

 

If you wish to have the Shingles Vaccination, please telephone the surgery on 0131 561 1900 to make an appointment with either a Doctor or Practice Nurse.

(The FLU vaccination can be given at the same time as the shingles vaccination)
