Shringrix Vaccination

  • In Aotearoa New Zealand shingles vaccination is FREE for 12 months once you turn 65. As long as you receive your first dose when you are 65, your second dose will still be free, even if you get it after you turn 66.

  • Shingrix is a vaccine that can prevent you from getting shingles and, if you do get shingles, this vaccine can prevent you from complications of shingles including long-term pain.

  • You need 2 doses, with the second dose given 2 to 6 months after the first.

  • Shingles can be very painful and your risk of getting it increases as you age. You are also more likely to have severe, long-term pain if you get shingles when you are older.

Any questions or want to get your vaccine? Call, send us a message or come and see our team in store.
