Buy your tickets today to attend the first annual Washington State Immunization Summit! This day-long summit will be held at The Conference Center at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and will offer continuing education credits.
The goal of the Washington State Immunization Summit is to enhance the effectiveness of health care professionals and systems to promote and deliver immunization in Washington State.
Topics will include vaccine hesitancy, the use of data and systems to improve rates (including the Washington State Immunization Information system and interfacing with the new School Module), and reaching under served populations.
Confirmed speakers include renowned vaccine hesitancy researcher Doug Opel, MD from Seattle Children's Research Institute and Clarissa Hsu, PhD from the Group Health Research Institute.
The Summit will be held on April 26, 2017 from 8:00am-4:00pm and will include a complimentary lunch.
Target Audience: nurses, medical assistants, pharmacists, physicians, health educators, public health staff, and other health professionals who work with immunizations.

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) - Office of Immunization and Child Profile hopes to provide a travel scholarship for representatives from local health jurisdictions in Washington State. DOH is currently exploring possible sources for scholarship funds. We will circulate an announcement widely if scholarship funds become available. Due to the limited number of spots available to attend the Summit, we recommend you register early for the Summit if you are interested in attending.
Refunds will be issued at 75% of your registration fee up until Friday, March 29, 2017. After that time, no refunds will be allowed. Substitutions may be allowed. Please contact Mackenzie Melton to request a refund or substitution.
