Khan Joins the American Lung Association's Faces of Influenza Program to

PHOENIX, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- In Maricopa County alone, an average of up 20% of the population, or 757,000 people, are estimated to suffer from influenza this season. Although more than two-thirds of Americans are recommended for annual vaccination, immunization rates fall short every year, leaving many unprotected and at risk for serious illness.
