COVID-19 AND ASTHMA
We know the asthma community faced significant uncertainties and challenges as the COVID-19 outbreak in Australia first unfolded. As the vaccine roll out continues and community outbreaks continue to emerge, you may have more questions.
Asthma Australia has been listening and responding to your concerns.
To help address some of your concerns about what the COVID-19 vaccine means for you, we’ve put together some COVID-19 vaccine and asthma FAQs.
Other work in this space
Asthma Australia undertook a COVID-19 and Asthma survey (including an ongoing pulse check) to understand the experiences of people with asthma. We also commissioned a study through our National Research Fund, to look at the Impact of COVID-19 on Asthma. This was completed by the George Institute for Global Health.
