Important Facts & FAQs

Is It Safe For People With Asthma To Get A Flu Shot?

Flu shots are safe and should be given to people with asthma older than 6 months. The nasal spray flu vaccine should not be used in people with asthma.

Can You Outgrow Asthma?

Some children outgrow asthma as they get older, but in most cases, asthma is a lifelong chronic disease that requires ongoing treatment. Asthma symptoms often come and go, but even when coughing and wheezing go away, asthma doesn’t go away. Just because a child with asthma feels fine and doesn’t notice any symptoms for a few weeks or months, it doesn’t mean the child doesn’t have asthma. Remember, asthma can be controlled, but not cured.

Can Asthma Be Cured?

Asthma cannot be cured, but with treatment, it can be controlled.
