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

hildren vaccinated against seasonal influenza, a potentially deadly disease. The CDC has recently expanded its annual influenza vaccination recommendations to include all children between 6 months through 18 years of age.

Cleveland resident Rick Cerett lost his infant grandson, Marques, to complications from influenza during the Christmas season of 2003. Marques was just shy of his 6 month birthday - the earliest a child can be vaccinated against influenza. Rick now is a crusader for yearly seasonal influenza vaccinations for parents, caregivers and children to help protect young infants. Rick has joined the Faces of Influenza awareness program to help prevent similar tragedies from striking other families.

"Most people think of influenza killing older people, not babies," said Rick. "But if you're around an infant, you need to get the vaccine to protect them, and, once your kids are old enough, they need to be vaccinated too."

In the United States, more children die from influenza each year than all other vaccine-preventable diseases combined. Additionally, pediatric influenza immunization rates are far below those of other childhood vaccines.

Additionally, recent studies have found that vaccination in pregnant women also helps to protect their babies from the disease.

Chances Are, We All Know Many "Faces" of Influenza

The Faces of Influenza campaign, which includes expanded awareness initiatives nationally and in many major cities, supports the CDC's call for Americans to get vaccinated against seasonal influenza this and every year.

Celebrities, health officials and everyday people have joined the Faces of Influenza campaign, sharing personal stories about their experiences with the disease and encouraging influenza vaccination among recommended groups.
