Take Your Best Shot: WV Adolescent Immunization Project
The WV Immunization Network is now accepting applications for its Take Your Best Shot (TYBS): Adolescent Immunization Pay for Success Pilot Project. Adolescent immunization rates for Tdap and MenACWY vaccination have reached Healthy People 2020 goals, however vaccination rates for other adolescent vaccines are still lagging in WV. Thus, TYBS projects will focus on improving HPV, meningococcal B, and influenza vaccination rates among adolescents.
This year, the WV Immunization Network has revised TYBS into a Pay for Success (PFS) pilot project linking funding to performance in increasing immunization rates for influenza, HPV and Men B. The PFS strategy will ensure that high-quality, effective immunization services result in increased adolescent vaccination rates. Eligible lead agency applicants include public and private entities, such as local health departments, community health centers, hospitals, school-based health clinics, private clinics or other organizations. (Please note lead agencies taking part in the current 2017-2018 Take Your Best Shot project are not eligible to take part in the 2018 PFS project.)
The Request for Applications, which contains additional guidance, and the Application Form are now available. An informational webinar will be held on February 27, 2018 at 12noon for potential applicants to review the Take Your Best Shot Pay for Success Pilot Project and provide an opportunity for applicants to ask questions about the project.

The deadline to apply for participation in the Pay for Success project is 5pm on March 16, 2018.
