PSAs to Remind People About Seasonal Whooping Cough / Pertussis
We would like to offer you a new video PSA that aims to educate Americans with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) about pertussis, also known as whooping cough. While anyone can get whooping cough, adults living with asthma are at four times greater risk of infection and complications. Vaccination is the best way to help protect against this illness, however only 30% of adults in America received the vaccine in the past 10 years.
The American Lung Association’s mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. As a part of this mission, one of our goals is to inform and educate consumers about whooping cough.
Now, more than ever, whooping cough vaccination is critical and necessary to protect ourselves from a preventable infectious respiratory disease – especially for adults at high risk of infection. Please help us educate your audience on this important topic.
