Shingles eligibility age breakdown (poster)


Prior to April 2017, shingles vaccine was offered routinely to individuals aged 70 years with a phased catch up programme based on age as of 1 September that year. However from 1 April, in order to simplify the delivery of programme, eligibility has been changed to the date a patient turns 70 years (routine cohort) and 78 years (catch up cohort).

Patients who attain the age of 70 or 78 can however be opportunistically immunised at any point in the year. Patients remain eligible for the shingles vaccine up until their 80th birthday. Those with existing eligibility for the vaccine but who missed it, can be offered immunisation on an opportunistic basis.

The who’s eligible for shingles vaccination? poster (product code 2942856B) and the shingles eligibility age breakdown poster (product code 2942856F) are available to order from the DH health and social care orderline and is suitable for all health and social care settings:
