ZOSTAVAX – Shingles Vaccine
Almost everyone is at risk of shingles because they are likely to have been exposed to chickenpox as some stage in their lives. The Zostavax vaccination prevents shingles and funding for this is changing.
At Carefirst we are encouraging all patients to book an appointment with one of our nurses to receive a funded Zostavax vaccination before the opportunity expires on the 31 December 2022.
Call your GP practice, Westown, Merrilands or Moturoa medical centre to book an appointment for your vaccine.
