16 Celebs Who Have Been Very Vocal About The Importance Of Vaccinations
The Sounds of Pertussis campaign also counts Jennifer Lopez as a spokeswoman.
As a mom of twins, Jennifer Lopez understands how important it is for parents and family members to vaccinate themselves against pertussis. She teamed up with the Sounds of Pertussis campaign to spread the word. Lopez says, “This issue is important to me. I didn’t know too much about it before becoming a parent but whooping cough is on the rise. There have been a significant increase in reported cases over the past decade”. She continues, “Parents don’t realize that they can get pertussis and transmit the disease to their babies.” Babies can be protected by getting their parents getting the Tdap vaccine before they’re born and are old enough to be vaccinated themselves.
