The CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award

CDC Childhood Immunization Champion award

The CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award is an annual award given jointly by the Association of Immunization Managersexternal icon (AIM) and CDC to recognize individuals who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization.

CDC recognizes the great effort made every year by leaders from AIM, our states and U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States, and the District of Columbia to identify champions who make a critical difference in childhood vaccination.  For this reason, CDC is revising and expanding the award program to be more inclusive by engaging members from multidisciplinary groups. We are thankful for your support and commitment. Detailed information about the revised award program and nominations will be released in the future.

The Role of Champions

Young children rely on the champions in their lives to keep them safe and healthy.

Those champions may be parents who keep a record of their child’s vaccinations and ask at each doctor appointment whether their child is up-to-date on immunizations. And, those champions may also be doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals who ensure that the children in their care receive all the recommended vaccines.

The CDC Childhood Immunization Champions are an inspiration to everyone who cares about children’s health. The Association of Immunization Managers (AIM) and CDC are pleased to recognize the recipients of the award for the special contributions they have made through their work in childhood immunization.
