  • Zoster (Shingles)
  • Immunocompromised Adults

Can a person age 60 years or older with a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, receive zoster vaccine?

Yes. Shingrix can be administered in this situation. Optimally, vaccination should occur when the disease is well-controlled and not during an acute disease flare.
