FLU INFORMATION CENTER

H1N1 ("Swine") Flu

H1N1 ("Swine") flu is a new strain of influenza (the "flu"), and it's different than the seasonal flu. But, like the seasonal flu, people with asthma are at a greater risk of getting this severe strain, so click on the link below to learn about what you need to know to prevent and prepare. (Note: For the 2010-2011 flu season, the flu vaccine does include protection against the 2009 H1N1 pandemic virus and 2 other flu viruses.)

Seasonal Flu

Every year the seasonal flu is responsible for causing complications for people with asthma. Getting seasonal flu shot each year is a very effective way to reduce your chances of dealing with complications due to flu symptoms. (Note: the seasonal flu shot will not protect you from the H1N1 flu; you should get both flu shots.)
