WA-CHIP Immunizations

Washington’s Child Health Improvement Partnership (WA-CHIP) leads immunizations learning collaboratives to improve child and adolescent vaccination rates statewide.

  • The 6th cohort of the Immunizations Learning Collaborative is kicking off in March 2024! Over a 9-month period, clinics will identify opportunities to increase childhood and adolescent vaccinations, use an equity focus to help identify health care gaps for patient population by race, ethnicity, and language, implement improvements, receive regular data and coaching, and benefit from participating in a community of clinics working toward the same goals.
