Parents and kids can find interactive content, including a quiz about seasonal flu, educational information, and insights into the lives of soccer stars, moms and role models Hamm and Chastain. The campaign also aims to educate families about the importance of seasonal flu vaccination for eligible individuals through informational brochures at WPS stadiums, media events and soccer clinics in WPS franchise cities, and directly to AYSO members and families around the country.
"'Don't Play with the Flu' reflects MedImmune's commitment to supporting healthy families," said Tony Zook, president of MedImmune. "We're very pleased to partner with Women's Professional Soccer, the American Youth Soccer Organization, and of course Mia Hamm and Brandi Chastain, to bring this important preventive health message to families across the country this flu season."
As a part of the campaign, MedImmune has become a sponsor of WPS, the world's premier women's professional soccer league, and AYSO, a nationwide non-profit youth soccer organization that develops and delivers quality youth soccer programs to approximately 600,000 players. MedImmune is the presenting sponsor of the 2009 WPS Championship in Los Angeles this Saturday, Aug. 22, and will also present the "Defender of the Year" award at the WPS All-Star Game in St. Louis on Sunday, Aug. 30.
