Diagnosed with shingles on the right side of neck, anti viral drugs not needed? Please suggest if consultation with gp required?

I attended a walk in centre today, I was diagnosed with shingles on the right side of my neck , the nurse told me I did not need the anti viral drug as I am 50 years old and it started on Tuesday. Your information states that if you have shingles on your neck then you should be given an anti viral drug. Do you think I should visit my GP or will I be wasting his time?
