You're eligible for the shingles vaccine if you're aged 70 or 78 years old.
In addition, anyone who was previously eligible (born on or after 2 September 1942) but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday.
When you're eligible, you can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year.
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.
