The UK Kidney Association and British Transplantation Society have produced joint guidance around the new shingles program.

The UK shingles vaccination programme aims to protect individuals who are most at risk from shingles and its complications. This reflects people of increased age and those who are severely immunosuppressed.

From 1st September 2023, all newly eligible individuals for the UK shingles vaccine are offered the non-live vaccine Shingrix®.
