Details of the 2019-20 Shingles (Herpes Zoster) Vaccination Programm

The CMO letter in respect of the 2020/21 Shingles vaccination programme has been published.

In order to further support the Shingles immunisation programme. NHS Education for Scotland in partnership with Health Protection Scotland has revised the resources for registered healthcare practitioners. These can be found below and include training slides and accompanying notes.

Please note: These educational resources continue to be updated as required to support this programme but do not replace the clinical judgement of practitioners. Practitioners should refer to the Public Health England Green Book Chapter when administering the vaccine.

The resource is available as a read only training power-point presentation,  to open click “read only” when prompted.  The resource is also available in PDF form, displaying the slides and notes.
