Jennifer Garner Helps to Kick Off Faces of Influenza Campaign

Baby Wellness: Time for Flu Shots!

It's that time of year — the dreaded, but necessary flu shots are here. The American Lung Association kicked off their "Faces of Influenza" public awareness campaign emphasizing the importance of getting vaccinated.

One of our favorite celeb moms, Jennifer Garner, joined the efforts along with famous parents, Dean Cain and Joy Behar. Jennifer said,

"Women play an important role in a family. It's our job to take care of those we love, that's why I make sure my family is protected against influenza. Influenza isn't just a cold. It can be much more serious. Chances are you or someone you know should be immunized."

The campaign is aimed at reaching moms, pregnant women, those with chronic illness, children six months to five years of age, and caregivers (which means dads and babysitters, too). Sadly, influenza, along with other complications, kills roughly 36,000 Americans a year.

To find a clinic in your area, go to the American Lung Association website and type in your zip code. The site also allows visitors to schedule reminders for the following year.
