Jennifer Garner: More Serious Than the Common Cold

The American Lung Association has named Jennifer Garner the new national "Face of Influenza" for their new awareness campaign. Was "Face of E. coli" already taken?

Jennifer filmed several PSAs urging at risk people to be immunized against influenza. Nearly 36,000 Americans die each year from influenza or its complications. To put that in perspective, that's more people than liked "Daredevil." Yeah, scary.
