Keri Russell Shares Personal Experience about Protecting Kids from a Deadly but Vaccine Preventable Disease
Parents of Kids with Infectious Diseases (PKIDs) today announced the launch of its national educational campaign "Silence the Sounds of Pertussis" with actress and new mom Keri Russell.
The campaign sounds the alarm about the dangers of pertussis and alerts parents to the need for everyone coming into close contact with young babies, especially family members, to be vaccinated against pertussis to prevent transmission of the disease. On the rise, pertussis is a highly contagious and potentially deadly bacterial infection that is particularly dangerous for babies.
