SHINGLES & MEASLES IMMUNISATION

Shingles

It's not always possible to prevent shingles, but a vaccine called Zostavax can reduce your chances of developing the condition.

If you still develop shingles after having this vaccine, it may be milder and last for a shorter time than usual.

The vaccine is available on the NHS to some people in their 70s.
