2024 Immunize WA Awards

The Health Plan Partnership, a cooperative alliance of the Department of Health (DOH), 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. The new award level in Immunize WA will be for 9- and 10-year-olds for dose initiation of HPV vaccine.

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

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 a strong recommendation to this age group. The new award level criteria will be for clinics that have 25% or higher for one dose of HPV in this age group and will not have a gold, silver, or bronze level but reflect cancer prevention tag on certificates and window clings.

The 2024 award levels providers must self-nominate starting in June, awards will be announced in August during National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). More information will be provided in future communications. Want to check your immunization rates? Please see the Immunize WA webpage for information on what series and age groups to measure. Here is a short video on how to run coverage rate reports, you can select any age group/series.
