No one is immune from COVID-19. Even people who are fully vaccinated and boosted can get COVID-19, though studies show that such individuals are significantly less likely to get seriously ill from the virus or transmit it to others.

Since there’s no immunity from COVID-19, some people may wonder if they’re more vulnerable than others. That includes asthma sufferers. Both COVID-19 and asthma affect the respiratory system, but the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America notes that research published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and the journal Chest has indicated that having asthma does not put individuals at a greater risk of getting COVID-19 or having severe COVID-19. In addition, a separate study published in JACI found that people with well-controlled asthma have less severe COVID-19 outcomes than those with uncontrolled asthma.
