Immunization Action Coalition of Washington
Founded in 1994, the Immunization Action Coalition of Washington (IACW) works to improve the health of the community by minimizing the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases through the optimal use of immunizations across the lifespan. Our goals are to coordinate Statewide efforts to: provide immunizers with tools and information to implement best practices in providing immunization services; build public will to support the value of immunizations, including educating the public about vaccines and the diseases they prevent; advocate for immunization policy in Washington State that is evidence-based, ensures equitable access to immunizations, and protects communities from vaccine-preventable diseases; and provide immunization stakeholders with opportunities to network, collaborate, and share information about immunization-related news and resources.
Members and participants agree to support our mission and strength immunization efforts in Washington State that are based on evidence-based guidance from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Check out our new Code of Conduct.
