Jennifer was snapped with Violet (who turns 2 in December) at the theater where Jennifer is rehearsing the stage play Cyrano de Bergerac. “She seems to love watching Jen work in there,” according to a witness. “And Jen loves having her around.”
In related news, Jennifer is the new face of influenza!
Jen appears in a new public service announcement promoting the importance of flu shots for FacesOfInfluenza.org, which is operated by the American Lung Association.
“Women play an important role in a family. It’s our job to take care of those we love, that’s why I make sure my family is protected against influenza,” Jennifer said. “Look around, and you’ll see someone in your life who should receive an influenza vaccination. There’s the couple with young children, like my husband and I, or your parents, who are over 50 years of age, or your friend who will be pregnant during influenza season. It’s also likely you know someone living with a serious medical condition, like asthma, COPD, heart disease, or diabetes. My own father has heart complications.”
“As one of the many Faces of Influenza, you and I and those close to us need to get vaccinated,” Jennifer says in the PSA. “Influenza isn’t the common cold – it’s serious.”
Violet turns 2 in December.
My husband, myself and my two children do get the flu vaccine every year now, but I didn’t know it was that serious. I suspect this campaign has some big pharm dollars behind it.
Hmmmm…upon investigation it turns out that I am right…the campaign is being funded by Sanofi Pasteur. In reality, the American Lung Association is just the “front.” Sanofi Pasteur is the money behind it. Big pharma companies are influencing our children’s lives in a very direct way…but they do everything very furtively behind closed doors. You probably didn’t hear, but it was just reported today that The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has expanded the approved age range for Menactra, a bacterial meningitis vaccine.
Originally approved by the FDA in 2005 for use by people ages 11 to 55 years, it is now approved to include children ages 2 to 10 years.
Meningitis is a serious inflammation of the lining that surrounds the spinal cord and brain and can result in death or permanent injury.
Before Menactra’s approval, Menomune was the only meningococcal vaccine available in the United States for use in children, ages 2 years and older. Both products are manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur Inc. of Swiftwater, Pa., and both offer protection against four groups of Neisseria meningitidis, the bacterium that can cause meningitis.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends meningococcal vaccination for children ages 2 to 10 years who are at increased risk of meningococcal disease, such as those whose spleen has been removed; those with a medical condition that makes it difficult to fight infection; and those who expect to travel to areas where the disease is common.
Vaccination also is used to control outbreaks of bacterial meningitis.
I will continue this another time, as this goes extremely deep. Sanofi Pasteur is a joint company of Merck and Sanofi-Aventis. Read more here about what Sanofi Pasteur is trying to do with the already controversial and experimental Gardasil vaccine for girls. If you have a daughter, you should know about Gardasil. Sanofi Pasteur managed to push through making this vaccine MANDATORY for young girls. Who wants to allow their children to unwittingly be guinea pigs in big pharma’s experiments?
