Is Shingrix effective for immunocompromised adults?

Shingrix has been studied in people with certain types of immunocompromise and has been shown to have moderate to high effectiveness against herpes zoster and postherpetic neuralgia. Because the causes of immunocompromise are so varied, the effectiveness and durability of protection provided by Shingrix also may vary depending upon the precise nature and severity of immunocompromise in a given individual.
