ImmunizeVA Annual Meeting 2023 Save The Date

2023 Annual Meeting

Join us on October 27, 2023, for the Coalition's third annual meeting! Our annual meeting serves as an organizing vehicle for immunization stakeholders from across Virginia to discuss challenges and threats to immunization rates, including ‘grassroots and grasstips’ advocacy; receive professional education and information on statewide immunization trends and best practices; engage in developing strategies to improve immunization rates across the Commonwealth. Invited speakers will share national trends, state/local level trends, as well as needs and best practices and how coalition members can get engaged.

This meeting is an opportunity to build connectivity across our community by: 

  • Reviewing and celebrating the work of the Coalition and its members.  

  • Identifying future threats to immunization rates in Virginia and opportunities to address them. 

  • Providing information and education on immunization topics relevant to current vaccination trends in Virginia. 

  • Receiving Live Continuing Education Credits for Pharmacists, Nurses, and Physicians.

  • Galvanizing members around shared immunization goals and strategies to meet them. 

  • Strengthening collaboration across members through networking opportunities.
