Vaccination: Shingles protection

Many GPs are accustomed to providing education to parents about the benefi ts of immunisation for their children, and will continue to provide vaccines for these patients into their teenage years.

However, the need to be immunised against a number of illnesses does not end in those teenage years. Older people, particularly those older than 60, need to be aware of illnesses they can avoid via vaccination.

South Australian GP Dr Rod Pearce has a special interest in immunisation and has been involved in linking Australia’s GPs and publicsystem immunisation for more than two decades.
