Dr. Vin Gupta joined the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to talk about COVID-19, the flu, and managing asthma on Dec. 10, 2020. He answered questions from viewers on:

  • Protecting yourself from the flu and COVID-19 while managing asthma
  • The flu and COVID-19 vaccines
  • Helping students manage asthma in school during COVID-19

Note: We recorded this webinar before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. We connected with several members of AAFA's Medical Scientific Council for The COVID-19 Vaccine: What We Know So Far. We will be keeping that resource updated with the latest information as it develops.
