Hi I have shingles spots which have all dried up on face and head I have got text to go for Carona jab on Sunday am I ok to go ? Hope you can help
Thanks for you post to the Helpline. The Covid 19 vaccines are all safe for people taking treatments for arthritis which affect the immune system. There's no mention of previous shingles being a problem for having a vaccine.

Hi thank you for your reply I did go for covid jab but could not have it because I was having antiviral tablets for the shingles and told to go back a week after finishing the tablets sue
Useful to know@Dougie
