Keri Russell is another pro-vaccine celeb who lent her voice to the Sounds of Pertussis campaign. After becoming a mom, Keri began educating others about the importance of the Tdap vaccine. She says, “I learned that pertussis, or whooping cough, has been on the rise in recent years, even though it is a vaccine-preventable disease. Following the birth of our son River, I spoke with my pediatrician about what I could do to protect our young child. She recommended my husband and I both get the pertussis booster. My pediatrician explained that parents actually cause more than half the cases in infants, which is why it is so important for adults and adolescents in close contact with infants to be immunized.”

We shouldn’t need to champion pro-vaccine celebrities, since we have science on our side. But it’s nice to know these celebs are as passionate about vaccinating kids as we are!
