Help Us Get Washington’s Kids Caught Up on Vaccines!

Immunity Community resources – Vax to School and Vax into Summer tools developed by WCAAP, DOH, and Public Health Seattle & King County include social media toolkits with images and text in Spanish and English, and “Dear Parent” template letters to recall families to catch up on routine childhood immunizations (available in 10 languages).

WA-CHIP Immunizations

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

  • The 5th cohort of the Immunizations Learning Collaborative is kicking off in April 2023! Over a 9-month period, clinics will identify opportunities to increase childhood and adolescent vaccinations, implement improvements, receive regular data and coaching, and benefit from participating in a community of clinics working toward the same goals.
