Shingles vaccines are now available. You are eligible for the shingles vaccine if you’re aged 70 or 78 years old. In addition, anyone who was previously eligible but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday. The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS to anyone aged 80 and over because it seems to be less effective in this age group.
