Jennifer Garner: Fight Influenza!
Jennifer Garner leaves a photo shoot in New York City on Thursday with 22-month-old daughter Violet.
Jen, 35, recently became the new face of influenza.
“Women play an important role in a family. It’s our job to take care of those we love, that’s why I make sure my family is protected against influenza,” Jennifer says. “Look around, and you’ll see someone in your life who should receive an influenza vaccination. There’s the couple with young children, like my husband and I, or your parents, who are over 50 years of age, or your friend who will be pregnant during influenza season. It’s also likely you know someone living with a serious medical condition, like asthma, COPD, heart disease, or diabetes. My own father has heart complications.”
Jen appears in a new public service announcement (PSA) promoting the importance of flu shots for FacesOfInfluenza.org, which is operated by the American Lung Association.
“As one of the many Faces of Influenza, you and I and those close to us need to get vaccinated,” Jennifer says in the PSA. “Influenza isn’t the common cold – it’s serious.”
