When the shingles jab first came about it was supposed to be offered to people between the ages of 70 and 80 but there was a typo when the information was sent out and it stated 70 and 80.  For some reason they decided to leave it at that.  I don't know whether that criteria still applies or whether it's now being offered to people 70 to 80 as originally intended. Over 80 it's ineffective.

 I remember hearing the rationale behind the 70-78, cut off at 80 and it was to do with statistical analysis of effectiveness in those age groups. Other than that, my memory is unclear. (Hic!)

Saw my GP today so I made an appointment with the nurse for Shingles and flu jabs. I'd feel an idiot if I ignored 'em and then died of one of 'em.  ;D

Sitting logged in, and perhaps smiling at something on the forum wouldn't be a bad way to go zoony.  Drifting off in a sleepy haze......
