American Lung Association of Arizona Kicks Off 2009-2010 Influenza Season In Phoenix
Date:9/21/2009

PHOENIX, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Mayor Phil Gordon and Phoenix community leaders, including Fire Chief Bob Khan and Chicanos por la Causa President and CEO Edmundo Hidalgo, are partnering with the American Lung Association of Arizona on its Faces of Influenza educational initiative to kick off the 2009-2010 influenza season in Phoenix.

In support of the program, Mayor Gordon, Chief Khan and Hidalgo will receive their seasonal influenza vaccinations and participate in a press briefing on Monday, Sept. 21 at 10:00 a.m. at the Phoenix City Hall Atrium.

The press briefing will focus on the importance of preventing the spread of seasonal influenza through vaccination, as public health experts, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommend seasonal influenza vaccination as the first line of defense this year in protecting against the influenza virus.

"It is the responsibility of every Phoenix resident to find out whether they are a 'face' of influenza recommended for annual seasonal influenza vaccination," said Mayor Gordon. "Many people are affected by seasonal influenza every year and don't realize that getting vaccinated is an easy way to protect their health, their family's health and the health of our community."

The American Lung Association's Faces of Influenza campaign encourages local residents to see themselves and their loved ones among the many "faces" of influenza - people who fall into one or more target groups recommended for annual vaccination by the CDC. Despite recommendations by health experts that more than four out of five Americans should be vaccinated against seasonal influenza annually, fewer than half actually do.
