The CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award is an annual award that recognizes individuals who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization. Each year, the CDC Childhood Immunization Champion honors up to one person from each of the 50 U.S. states, 8 U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States, and the District of Columbia. Nominees of all kinds are accepted, including parent advocates, community members, and health care professionals who go above and beyond their expected responsibilities to ensure that children in their communities get their vaccines on time.

Nominations should be submitted to the Immunization Program Manager in the state or territory where the nominee resides by January 29, 2016. Program Managers will review all nominations received and select one for submission to CDC by February 19, 2016. CDC will review nominations for each state and announce awardees during National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), April 16-23, 2016.

Materials for promoting the award to your constituents is available on the CDC website (www.cdc.gov/vaccines/champions). For more information about the CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award, please visit: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/champions.
