Changes from September 2023

From 1 September 2023, more people will be eligible for the shingles vaccine.

As well as people aged 70 to 79, you’ll be eligible:

  • when you turn 65 (if you turned 65 before 1 September 2023, you’ll be eligible for the vaccine when you turn 70)
  • if you’re aged 50 or over and have a severely weakened immune system

You’ll be contacted by your GP surgery when you become eligible for the vaccine.
