The Idaho Immunization Program has standardized its rate achievement award criteria; this is separate from the rate improvement award criteria. Beginning in 2014, rate awards are awarded to providers who meet or exceed the Healthy People 2020 immunization goals for the 4th dose of DTaP (90%), the 2nd dose of Hep A (85%), and the 4:3:1:3:3:1 series (80%), where Hib is either 2 or 3 doses depending on brand.
The Immunization Champion Award is an annual award given by the Idaho Immunization Program to recognize individuals or teams that go above and beyond to promote childhood immunizations in their communities. Award recipients in 2014 were announced during Shot Smarts, April 28-May 2, 2014. The Immunization Champions are an inspiration to everyone who cares about children's health. The Idaho Immunization Panel is pleased to recognize the recipients of the award for the special contributions they have made through their work in childhood immunization.
