The American Lung Association has launched Faces of Influenza, a multiyear national public awareness initiative, to help Americans put a "face" on this serious disease and recognize annual influenza immunization as an important preventive measure to protect themselves and their families every year. Jennifer Garner is supporting this cause as the national "face" of influenza.

"I've joined the American Lung Association on its Faces of Influenza program. We all know someone who should receive an influenza vaccination. It can be a very serious illness, that's why I make sure my family is vaccinated each year." —Jennifer Garner

Influenza is a serious respiratory illness. Even though the disease is preventable, along with its complications, influenza kills an average of 36,000 people and hospitalizes about 226,000 people every year. Those targeted for immunization include people 50 years of age and older, young children, everyone in close contact with people who have high-risk conditions, and health-care providers.

"I want other families to know how important influenza vaccination can be for our health. It's likely we all know someone who should be immunized. For example, just about everyone in my life needs to get immunized. Two out of every three Americans are recommended to receive annual influenza immunization." —Jennifer Garner
