West Virginia Immunization Network Regonizes Excellence

The West Virginia Immunization Network (WIN) announced its 2013 Immunization Awards winners at the Eighth Annual WIN Awards & Policy Dinner held February 20th at WV Culture Center in Charleston. Awardees included Sharon Carte of the West Virginia Children’s Health Insurance Program; Summersville Pediatrics; Cardinal Pediatrics; Dr. Kathryn Moffett of the West Virginia University School of Medicine; West Virginia Pharmacists; Kelli Caseman of the WV School-Based Health Assembly; Bonnie Brown and Barbara Hatfield, former WV delegates; and West Virginia School Nurses.

West Virginia School Nurses received the highest award, the Special Achievement Award. This award is given in recognition of those who have gone “above and beyond” to give tremendous amounts of time and effort to increase immunization rates and protect West Virginians from vaccine-preventable diseases. School nurses were at the forefront of educating parents about the new adolescent immunization requirements that began in the fall and ensuring that students entering 7th and 12th grades had received their Tdap and meningococcal vaccines. As a result over 39,000 students in West Virginia are now protected from whooping cough and bacterial meningitis! This achievement is something that we as a state should be proud of and celebrate. We thank the West Virginia School Nurses not only for ensuring that students have received their immunizations, but for working so hard every day to protect the health and safety of our community of students.
