Dr. Torre's web site was created to provide our patients, their families and other medical professionals with important information. Web links to additional sites offer state of the art information on allergies, asthma, (scuba) diving medicine, help with prescription medications and even a video game for teens and older children to improve their asthma knowledge. New patient forms and copies of our most common handouts are downloadable as well.

Flu shots are in for the 2020-2021 Season. The CDC advises all persons aged 6 months and above should receive influenza vaccine.
Because the flu season will coincide with the presence of COVID-19 in the population, the CDC says that vaccination will reduce the presence of symptoms that might be confused with the pandemic disease and could also lower demands on the country's healthcare system.

From the The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology: Asthma patients taking inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) should be advised to continue these medications as they have been shown to prevent or reduce asthma exacerbations associated with viral infections and a recent study reported that inhaled corticosteroids inhibit the Coronavirus replication. So, whether you are on a "controller" medication all the time or just with exacerbations, take your controller inhaler until the Covid-19 Pandemic is over.
