Family Health Associates and Squalicum Family Medicine were recently recognized by the Department of Health for their commitment to preventing disease through immunizations. Each clinic earned the Govenor's Silver level award in the #ImmunizeWA program.
Immunize Washington is a partnership between public health, health plans and other organizations that aims to:
- Increase immunization rates at the clinic level by using best practice tools and the Washington State Immunization Information System (IIS).
- Encourage clinics to measure their immunization rates so they know where they are doing well and areas to improve.
- Jointly develop and sponsor a provider immunization recognition program.
- Help Washington meet national goals for child and teen vaccines
