Allergists Urge Asthmatics to Get Swine and Seasonal Flu Shots Following CDC Vaccine Advisory Committee Recommendations
Date:7/30/2009

the virus which has resulted in an estimated 43,000 reported cases in the United States including 302 deaths. The CDC estimates that these reported cases are just the tip of the iceberg and that there have been a least a million cases of the H1N1 virus since June of this year.

"While everyone needs to be aware of the symptoms of the new H1N1 virus, patients with chronic health problems like asthma need to be especially concerned if they develop respiratory symptoms," said Richard Gower, M.D., president of the ACAAI. "If you have asthma and experience symptoms such as fever, headache, fatigue, sore throat, dry cough, nasal congestion and body aches, call your doctor immediately to determine if treatment is needed. If symptoms are caught early, antiviral drugs can be used to combat the virus and help prevent complications."

Asthma patients also will still need to get a separate vaccine for the seasonal flu this fall. A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that adults with asthma, particularly younger adults, are being vaccinated against the flu at levels well below national goals.
