American Lung Association in Colorado's Faces of Influenza Initiative Rolls Up its Sleeves to Kick Off Flu Season in Denver
Date:10/15/2009

DENVER, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Health experts recommend annual influenza vaccination for nearly 250 million people in the U.S. Despite this recommendation, influenza immunization rates fall far short every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 28,842 to 115,368 Denver residents will suffer from influenza in an average year.

To encourage local immunization, the American Lung Association in Colorado (ALAC) is hosting a vaccination clinic open to all Denver residents today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at ALAC's office, located at 5600 Greenwood Plaza Blvd, Suite 100, Greenwood Village, CO 80111.

"Getting a flu shot helps me avoid influenza both at school and at home," said Heidi Kinsella, a Denver mother and special education teacher. "I know that getting my girls vaccinated has helped to keep them from getting sick. I even make my husband, his parents and my parents get their flu shot."

To help reinforce the CDC's recommendations for vaccination, the ALAC is bringing the Faces of Influenza national educational campaign to the Denver area. This multi-year public awareness initiative helps Americans put a "face" on this serious disease and recognize annual influenza immunization as an important preventive measure to protect themselves and their loved ones every year.

Heidi, like many other "faces" of influenza, knows influenza vaccination is the best way to help protect her family from the disease. Heidi even got vaccinated when she was first pregnant to help protect not only herself but also her unborn baby. As a mom, Heidi understands the seriousness of seasonal influenza and its complications. She joined the 2009-2010 Faces of Influenza initiative and is attending ALAC's vaccination clinic to talk about the need for Denver area residents to see themselves among the "faces" featured in the program and urge them to get immunized.
