Did you know?


Almost everyone is at risk of shingles because they are likely to have been exposed to chickenpox, even if they have no history of clinical chickenpox or chickenpox vaccination. Following chickenpox infection, the virus lies dormant in the nerves near the spine and may re-emerge many years later as shingles. Shingles most commonly affects older adults or people of any age with a weakened immune system.

The shingles vaccination – Zostavax- is available free for those aged 65 to 80 years. Zostavax is available for purchase for those aged 50 – 64 years.

It is not suitable for some people with medical conditions or who are receiving treatments that affect their immune system.

In New Zealand, infants and children aged under 5 years and adolescents aged 15–19 years have an increased risk of meningococcal disease. Māori, particularly infants aged under 1 year, and Pacific peoples have a higher risk of meningococcal disease than other ethnic groups. These vaccines are available for purchase.
