Actress and Mother Jennifer Garner Joins American Lung Association to Encourage Americans to Get an Influenza Vaccination
Date:10/18/2007

ta Flowers; and actor Peter Gallagher.

Each is sharing his or her personal stories on national and local levels about the serious impact of influenza and are encouraging influenza vaccination among target groups -- according to recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"Through the Faces of Influenza program, the American Lung Association's goal is to reinforce how serious this disease can be for both healthy and high-risk individuals and to emphasize the importance of annual vaccination to protect ourselves and our loved ones," said Norman Edelman, MD, Chief Medical Officer of the American Lung Association. "We encourage anyone wanting to prevent influenza to get vaccinated at some point throughout the season, which can be beneficial well into the new year."

The campaign will officially kick-off on November 12 with a public vaccination clinic in New York City, where Garner will join Acting Surgeon General Steven K. Galson, MD, MPH and others in encouraging people to seek influenza immunization for themselves and their families. Since the influenza season typically does not peak until February, vaccination should continue throughout the fall and winter months, and even into the spring.

Faces of Influenza Awareness Activities

The Faces of Influenza initiative will conduct widespread awareness activities during the influenza season, including national distribution of new television and radio public service announcements featuring Jennifer Garner. In addition, the campaign features a photo exhibition of dramatic black-and-white portraits and personal stories featuring celebrities and everyday Americans who fall into one or more of the groups CDC recommends for annual influenza vaccination.<
