Child and adolescent vaccines are down 20% month over month. We all collectively want to overcome these gaps and we also know how busy clinics are. WCAAP can support your clinic to increase vaccine rates in a way that is efficient AND effective.
Our immunizations learning collaborative is open to practices anywhere in Washington state and our fourth cohort is kicking off April 27, 2022. We provide coaching from expert faculty from WCAAP, SCH and PHSKC, and a community of peer clinics from which to learn. The project helps clinics implement meaningful, feasible and sustained focus on childhood and adolescent vaccines. Through this clinic-wide intervention pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and family physicians of participating clinics can earn MOC credits as well as CME credits, while improving low vaccination rates due to COVID-19.
Visit our WA-CHIP website to learn more about our immunizations learning collaborative, download a fact sheet and see the timeline, or if you are interested in participating or know of clinics that would be interested email Tatiana Sarkhosh, Program Manager at email@example.com.
DOH Survey on Barriers to Routine Childhood Vaccinations
Childhood immunization rates have remained low compared to pre-pandemic rates even after the stay at home order was lifted. The Office of Immunization created a survey to get feedback from Immunization Providers on routine pediatric/adolescent vaccination barriers. It should take approximately 5 minutes to complete and would help the state to understand factors that might be contributing. Please complete the survey by Friday, March 25th.
Here is the link to the survey.
