American Lung Association of Ohio Encourages Cleveland Residents to See Themselves Among the Many 'Faces' of Influenza
Date:9/23/2009

CLEVELAND, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.

To help educate Cleveland area residents about the importance of annual seasonal influenza vaccination, the American Lung Association of Ohio is partnering with the Cleveland Department of Public Health to kick off the 2009-2010 influenza season. Free seasonal flu shots will be offered to all Cleveland residents, in support of the Faces of Influenza initiative. The seasonal influenza vaccinations will be administered at the Merrick House Fulton at 3167 Fulton Road in Cleveland from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009.

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.

"The recent H1N1 outbreak is a strong reminder that influenza is not the common cold. It's a serious respiratory illness," said Emily Lee, Program Director, American Lung Association of Ohio. "Each year approximately 226,000 people are hospitalized and 36,000 die due to complications."

Despite recommendations by health experts that more than four out of five Americans get vaccinated against seasonal influenza annually, fewer than half actually do.

On average, between 23,920 and 95,680 Cleveland area residents will suffer from seasonal influenza, yet immunization rates fall short each year.
