CDC Childhood Immunization Champion 2018

CDC and the CDC Foundation are looking forward to recognizing the great work that immunization champions are doing in communities across the US to promote immunizations for children ages 0-2!


Nominations for the CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award should be submitted to the immunization program manager in the state or territory where the nominee resides by the suggested deadline of February 2, 2018. Dates may vary by state. Program managers will review all nominations received and select one for submission to CDC by February 23, 2018. CDC will review nominations and announce awardees during National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), April 21-28, 2018.

Champions can come from a variety of settings and states should consider all kinds of nominees. Past awardees have included parent advocates, community members, and health care professionals who go above and beyond their expected responsibilities to ensure that children in their communities get vaccinated on time.

A full suite of material and additional information is available on our website to use in soliciting and submitting nominations.
