Victoria’s epidemic thunderstorm asthma forecasting system will cease delivering forecasts on Sunday, December 31, to coincide with the end of the 2017 grass pollen season.
Despite the end of the grass pollen season, Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Prof. Charles Guest, reminds Victorians of the importance of good asthma management year-round.
This means taking preventer medication regularly as prescribed and using inhalers correctly. If you experience asthma symptoms, follow your Asthma Action Plan or the Asthma First Aid steps. See your doctor if there are any ongoing symptoms.
