The “Faces of Influenza” initiative, begun by the American Lung Association, has as its national spokesperson actress Jean Smart, a mother who has diabetes and is in the high-risk group that should receive a vaccination.  

Actor Dean Cain, a father and an asthmatic, is also a spokesperson for the initiative The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that children over 6 months, pregnant women, adults over age 50, and adults with such chronic conditions as asthma, pulmonary disease and diabetes, and everyone in regular contact with these people, be vaccinated.
