Shingles is common, affecting 20-30% of the population in their lifetime. The risk of shingles becomes higher as you age, as does the possibility of long-term and lasting pain as a result of the virus.
A vaccine is available, that reduces the chances of you being affected by the virus and any symptoms it creates.
It is recommended for everyone over the age of 60 years by the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, as well as for those who have had shingles in the past. Vaccines are available at $275 for patients who are not eligible for the free Vaccine.
