Purpose and outline
In March 2010, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommended that patients aged 70 years should be routinely offered vaccination against shingles. This programme was introduced in September 2013.
Eligible patients are all those who were aged 70 years on 1 September 2013 or who attained their 70th birthday between 1 September 2013 and the quality service end date (inclusive), and the vaccine was administered whilst the patient was aged less than 80 years old.
