The National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit (NAIIS) is soliciting nominations for the 2020 NAIIS Immunization Excellence Awards. The 2020 awards recognize individuals and organizations that have made extraordinary contributions towards improving vaccination rates within their communities during 2019. Awardees exemplify the meaning of the “immunization neighborhood” (collaboration, coordination, and communication among immunization stakeholders dedicated to meeting the immunization needs of the patient and protecting the community from vaccine-preventable diseases). Unless an award criterion is specifically focused on influenza, it is the intent of the Summit to recognize broader adult immunization activities.
A National Winner will be selected for each award category, and where appropriate, an Honorable Mention recipient. The winners will be presented with their awards at the NAIIS meeting to be held on May 18 in Atlanta, GA, in conjunction with CDC’s National Immunization Conference. The National Winner in each category will be invited to present their programs at the NAIIS meeting.
Access information on the award categories and the nomination form. Nominations are due February 1, 2020.
