New Influenza Vaccination Awareness PSA Educates Families about Ways to Not Get "Sidelined" From Seasonal Flu this Year

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Families Fighting Flu (FFF) reminds parents today to get their children vaccinated against the seasonal flu.

Today, FFF is also announcing the availability of a new public service announcement (PSA) that features soccer legend and mom, Mia Hamm who talks about the importance of getting a seasonal flu vaccination this year and every year.
