We know the asthma community faced significant uncertainties and challenges as the COVID-19 outbreak in Australia first unfolded and it continues to unfold as the disease develops and the vaccines roll out. Asthma Australia has been listening and responding to your concerns.

To help address some of your concerns as to what the COVID-19 vaccine means for you, we’ve put together some COVID-19 vaccine and asthma FAQs.

Additionally, you can read more about the COVID-19 vaccine and what it means for someone with asthma via the button below.
