Starting September 15, 2016, the SHINGLES VACCINE will be available FREE of charge for Ontarians 65 to 70 years of age, saving approximately $170 for eligible seniors. If you qualify, you can get free shingles vaccine from your family doctor or other primary care provider (e.g. nurse practitioner). Note: If you turn 71 in 2016 (born in 1945), you can still get the free shingles vaccine. But you have to get it no later than December 31, 2016. If you don't qualify for the free shingles vaccine, you can still get vaccinated with a prescription from your family doctor or other primary care provider, but you have to pay for it yourself (price varies with pharmacies, range approx. $170-$200, may be partially or fully reimbursed by some private health insurance). For more information, see: Get the free shingles vaccine. For public inquiries, call ServiceOntario, INFOline at 1-866-532-3161 (Toll-free in Ontario only).
