Shingrix Vaccine Now Available

Shingrix Vaccine Now Available

Effective immediately, The Sloane Street Surgery now offers Shingrix® vaccinations. Our GPs recommend vaccination with Shingrix against Herpes zoster virus to all patients over the age of 65, even if you have received a previous Shingles vaccination. This is because the new vaccine, which has recently become available in the UK, is much more effective at preventing a Shingles infection. This is currently not available on the NHS.

To discuss how having the Shingrix® vaccine could benefit your long-term immunity or to book an appointment to have yourself vaccinated, contact your GP’s Secretary on our contact page.
