Who will get the shingles vaccine?

People are eligible for the shingles vaccine in the year they turn 70. There is a 'catch-up' programme for people who missed out on the vaccine in previous years. See the table below to find out if you are eligible for this year's vaccine. People aged 75, who are not eligible this year, will be offered the vaccine next year.
