The American Lung Association of the Central States Encourages Greater Kansas City Metro Residents to See Themselves Among the Many 'Faces' of Influenza
Date:9/21/2009

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 21 /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.

The American Lung Association of the Central States is kicking off its 2009-2010 Faces of Influenza initiative in Kansas City and is supporting local public health efforts to get Greater Kansas City Metro area residents vaccinated against seasonal influenza as soon as possible. Today, the area's ten local public health agencies are coordinating region-wide influenza vaccination clinics to provide residents with the opportunity to protect themselves, and their families, friends and loved ones against the seasonal flu. More information about these flu clinics can be found at www.preparemetrokc.org.

"Everyone, from children to adults, is encouraged to get a seasonal flu shot," Independence Health Director Larry Jones said. "This will help reduce the incidence of illness from the flu in the communities throughout the metro area. It will provide protection from a disease that causes more than 36,000 deaths annually in the United States."

Michael K. Shafe, MD FACEP, Medical Director of the Urgency Room, also is partnering with the American Lung Association of the Central States' Faces of Influenza campaign to let community residents know that vaccination is the best protection available against the disease.

"Seasonal influenza vaccine is now available and I encourage Kansas City area residents to take this opportunity to get vaccinated now so they can protect themselves against the flu virus," said Dr. Shafe. "Seasonal influenza remains a serious concern, even with the presence of the 2009 A(H1N1) virus."
