Available from 1st November 2016

Shingles can be serious, especially for people over 60 years of age. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After having chickenpox, the virus stays inside your body and can become active again later on to cause shingles.

Because nearly every Australian adult has been exposed to chickenpox at some time in their life, nearly everyone is at risk of developing shingles.
