Washington (ANI): American actress Jennifer Lopez has taken up a
new campaign and she is urging parents to vaccinate themselves
against whooping cough, so that the deadly virus will not be passed
on to their kids. Lopez, 39, who is mother to 14-month-old twins
Max and Emme, further warned parents that should the kids contract
the virus it could kill them.
The actress is backing up the campaign to raise awareness about
the dangers of the disease, which is easily cured among adults, but
potentially deadly to infants. “They actually catch it from their
parents. We can get over it but, for the baby, it can lead to
death... so I got it and recommend everyone to get it," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
