The 2022 Immunization Champions have been announced! Please read through to learn more about the 2022 Champions from various jurisdictions.
Zhao Wang, MD, is the founder and president of a pediatric clinic that routinely achieves high immunization rates due to Dr. Wang’s consistent and thorough patient education. His clinic staff are well trained to check for missed vaccines, answer questions, and conduct vaccine reminders. Dr. Wang also serves as a Chinese American Independent Practice Association board member and mentors other pediatricians to improve their vaccination rates. With widespread disinformation and mistrust in vaccines exacerbated by COVID-19, Dr. Wang has put even more focus into becoming a better educator and advocate for immunizations.
“The optimism that more diseases can be prevented with better access to vaccines motivates him to be a passionate champion for immunization.”
