Editors are advised that a high-resolution photo is available to accompany the news release, MM44765, Pertussis Awareness Takes Center Stage in Times Square With the Sound Off About Pertussis(TM) Song Contest Launch, issued earlier today by March of Dimes and Sanofi Pasteur.

Caption: NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon gets up close and personal with Perri Tussis, a giant replica of a Bordetella pertussis bacterium, in Times Square. Gordon, who is the spokesperson for the Sounds of Pertussis Campaign, attended a Pertussis Awareness Day event in New York City to encourage all adults in close contact with an infant to help protect themselves against whooping cough, like he did, by getting an adult Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) booster. Pertussis, or whooping cough, is highly contagious and is often spread to vulnerable infants by the adults in their lives. Visit (PRNewsFoto)
