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 priorities for 2015 include addressing barriers to immunization access; vaccine hesitancy; HPV immunization; and adult immunizations.
IACW Statewide Goals:
- 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 disease.
- Provide immunization stakeholders with opportunities to network, collaborate, and share information about immunization-related news and resources.
