Asthma UK have published the following shielding advice, which we have been asked to share with you;​​

“If you are, or your child is, taking:

  • Any biologic therapy, also called a mAb (Xolair/omalizumab, Nucala/mepolizumab, Cinqaero/reslizumab, Fasenra/benralizumab)
  • Steroid tablets or liquid every day
  • Antibiotic tablets or liquid for asthma every week (e.g. azithromycin)
  • Tiotropium
  • A combination inhaler that also contains a long-acting bronchodilator (e.g. Seretide, Fostair, Symbicort) at a high daily steroid dose (see the list)
  • An inhaler with a high daily steroid dose (see the list) AND you are taking Montelukast

Or, if:

  • You have been admitted to hospital for your asthma in the last 12 months
  • You have ever been admitted to an intensive care unit for your asthma

Then you should follow the shielding advice which is set out in the article, including how to register for extra services from the government.”
