Hoosiers with asthma urged to get flu shot

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) urges people with asthma who are sensitive to cold to cover their mouth and nose when they go out in cold and windy weather. People with asthma should also be aware of indoor triggers, such as smoke from fireplaces and wood-burning stoves.

All Hoosiers with asthma should get a flu vaccine to help protect against the respiratory virus, which can cause severe illness in individuals with asthma. Managing your asthma by using prescribed medications as directed by your healthcare provider can help you breathe easier during colder months.

“Having asthma myself, I know how it can be a very serious condition, especially in colder conditions,” said State Health Commissioner Jerome Adams, M.D., M.P.H. “Planning now, getting a flu shot and being aware of potential triggers will put Hoosiers with asthma on a path to a healthier winter.”

Should you give your asthma action plan to supervisor?

At work I gave a copy of my asthma action plan to the nurse AND my supervisor. Usually we just give emergency contact and medical info to the nurse, but do you think it was a smart thing to give it to my supervisor as well?


Yes, you should. I am a supervisor and not knowing what is going on when someone has an attack is scary! You could die because someone is uneducated about asthma


yes
