Shingles Vaccine
The Shingles vaccine is available from £170 as a single dose. It is suitable for people over the age of 50 years.
Shingles is caused by the Varicella-zoster virus which is the same virus that causes chicken pox in children. The risk of shingles increases with age and can reactivate at later stages in life. Symptoms of shingles may be like chicken pox but can be much more painful and longer lasting in adults.
The vaccine is given as an injection into the upper arm.
This vaccine requires a single dose. No further booster doses are needed.
Following vaccination, you may experience a sore, achy or heavy arm due to the injection. There can also be some pain, soreness, redness or bruising at the injection site. Other side-effects include flu like symptoms, drowsiness, temperature, aches and pains, headaches, dizziness and nausea. Some people may also get a rash similar to chicken pox following the vaccine.

There is a very small chance that some people can be allergic to the vaccine and cause anaphylaxis. This is extremely rare and the risk of this is no different to an allergy to any other medication. Our vaccinators always check to make sure you are not at risk of any allergies prior to the vaccine and are prepared to manage allergies if needed.
