The Comité sur l’immunisation du Québec (CIQ) preferentially recommends SHINGRIX for:2
- Adults 50 years of age and older.
- Immunocompromised* adults 18 years of age and older.
Immunocompromised populations are heterogeneous, with their level of immune competence depending on many factors: disease severity and duration, clinical stability, complications and comorbidities, any potentially immunosuppressing treatment. Safety and immunogenicity data on SHINGRIX may not be available for all adults at increased risk of HZ. Consider patients on an individual basis.
