Shield yourself from shingles – Chris

Chris shares a message to those aged 65 and over about the importance of getting the free shingles vaccine.


Did you know that one in three people will get shingles?

It can be really nasty, especially as you get older or if your immune system is weak.

The good news is, if you are 65 years or older, you can get a safe and effective shingles vaccine for free.

Also, if you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person aged 50 or older, or an adult who is immunocompromised with eligible medical conditions, you can get the vaccine for free.
