In brief: No
Severe combined immunodeficiency (scid) is a genetic abnormality with the immune system. It is, therefore, not infectious (or communicable) to others.
Scid patients, however, are highly susceptible to any infectious disease including those that would not usually cause disease in people with normal immune systems.

Severe combined immunodeficiency (scid) is a defect in the immune system. It is not communicable, but it can be spread from parents to children genetically.
