Submit Nominations for HPV Vaccine is Cancer Prevention Champion Award

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Association of American Cancer Institutes (AACI), and the American Cancer Society (ACS) are partnering to recognize immunization providers who are successfully preventing HPV cancers, through timely vaccination of their young adolescent patient population.

The HPV Vaccine is Cancer Prevention award program will serve to motivate clinicians to adopt effective recommendation practices, and help educate clinicians on the individual- and practice-level changes that can improve rates. By recognizing clinicians with high HPV vaccine rates, we hope the program also serves to reinforce for parental audiences that HPV vaccination is an important part of cancer prevention and a normal part of adolescent immunization.

NACCHO encourages our members to view the eligibility requirements and nominate an eligible recipient from your community. Access the full nomination packet for more information.
