It applies to patients with congenital immune deficiencies, HIV/AIDS, cancer, solid organ transplant (such as kidney and liver), stem cell transplant, chronic inflammatory conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease), sickle cell disease and asplenia, cochlear implants, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks.
