Immunize Washington

2024 Immunize WA Awards


The Immunize WA awards celebrates its 10-year anniversary in 2024, recognizing clinics that achieve immunization coverage criteria for childhood, adolescents, and now 9- and 10-year-olds for HPV dose initiation. 

The Immunize WA 2024 awards will be announced on August 20, 2024.

New award level

One year ago, the Washington Immunization Information System forecasting changed to reflect that 9- and 10-year-olds are due for HPV vaccine. Many clinics have embraced this change and started making strong recommendations to this age group.  

To reflect this new recommendation, the Health Plan Partnership, a cooperative alliance of the Department of Health, Health Care Authority, HPV Free Task Force, Within Reach, and all the major health plans in Washington, is excited to announce a new award level for the Immunize WA provider recognition program. This new award level is for dose initiation of HPV vaccine for 9- and 10-year-olds. 
Clinics with a rate of 25% or higher for one dose of HPV in this age group will receive a certificate and window cling that honors their efforts with a cancer prevention ribbon.
