I can only speak for myself and all situations are different. My husband has dementia and several underlying heart and lung health conditions. He got all three vaccines and flu shot because. Since she has an in home nurse she might be at risk
if she sees other patients or her family and friends. I would ask her or whoever is monitoring her nurse care.
