Nominations Open: 2017 CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award

Jan 09, 2017 | Kim Rodgers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC Foundation have published nomination materials for the 2017 CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award, which annually recognizes individuals who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization. The award honors up to one person from each of the 50 U.S. states, 8 U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States, and the District of Columbia. Award nominees can come from a variety of settings and could include parent advocates, community members, and health care professionals who go above and beyond their expected responsibilities to ensure that children in their communities get their vaccines on time.

For full details about all aspects of the nomination process, view the nomination packet. Nominations should be submitted to the Immunization Program Manager (see contact list, p. 7) in the state or territory where the nominee resides by February 3, 2017. Immunization Program Managers will review all nominations received and select one for submission to CDC by February 24, 2017. CDC will review nominations for each state and announce awardees during National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), April 22-29, 2017.
