The COSHAR Foundation Urges Parents to Ensure Children Are Up-to-Date on Vaccinations
Date:11/10/2008

National immunization program reaches more than 11,000 churches since its launch in April

CHEVY CHASE, Md., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In preparation for flu season, The COSHAR Foundation today urges parents to protect their children against vaccine-preventable illnesses -- including the flu. The Foundation's efforts are part of a national immunization awareness campaign, Protecting our Future: The COSHAR Foundation Immunization Project, designed to raise awareness of the importance of timely childhood vaccination, and to ultimately increase vaccine compliance rates among under-vaccinated children.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that can cause mild to severe illness, and at times, can lead to death. In fact, each year, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized and about 36,000 people die from flu complications. The Foundation supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendations, and encourages children aged 6 months to 19 years of age, pregnant women, adults aged 50 years and older and those with chronic medical conditions to get vaccinated.

"It is important for parents and caregivers to understand the importance of timely vaccination, as it is the best defense against many life-threatening childhood diseases," says Sharon Allison-Ottey, M.D., Executive Director, The COSHAR Foundation. "With nearly a quarter of children in the United States missing life-saving vaccines, we encourage parents and caregivers to contact their healthcare providers to confirm whether their child has received the age-appropriate recommended vaccines, as well as to receive advice and information about immunizations."

The Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to health education, improvement and empowerment with a focus on minority and disadvantaged populations, announced Protecting our Future in April, during National Infant Immunization Week. The Foundation has successfully reached parents and health care provid
