Like many of my generation I had Chickenpox as a child, but am being forced to wait until 70 before the NHS will help protect me against Shingles.
Shingles is a very painful medical condition which effects individuals who have previously had chickenpox.
It is not an academic question for me, because my father had Shingles, as have a number of my friends and comrades. A number of them being under 70 years old.
At the same time the NHS is restricting the Chickenpox vaccine.
It’s time that the NHS should automatically give a Shingles vaccination to any adult who has ever had chickenpox.
