What is Preventative Health?

Preventative Health refers to routine health care that includes screenings, check-ups, and patient counselling to prevent illnesses, disease, or other health problems.

Shingles Vaccination

From 1 November 2023, the shingles vaccine Shingrix® will replace Zostavax® on the National Immunisation Program (NIP) schedule for the prevention of shingles and post-herpetic neuralgia.

It will be available for eligible people most at risk of complications from shingles.

A 2-dose course of Shingrix® will be available for free for:

• people aged 65 years and older

• First Nations people aged 50 years and older

• immunocompromised people aged 18 years and older with medical conditions including:

• haemopoietic stem cell transplant

• solid organ transplant

• haematological malignancy

• advanced or untreated HIV.

Unlike Zostavax®, Shingrix® does not contain any live virus so it can be given to people aged 18 years and over who are immunocompromised

Eligible people who have received one dose of Shingrix® vaccine privately can receive their second dose free under the NIP.

Can patients who have previously received Zostavax receive Shingrix? Yes, but Patients who have previously received Zostavax® free under the NIP cannot receive free Shingrix® until at least 5 years after the Zostavax® dose.

Please contact us today to discuss your Preventative Health requirements.
