The Vax Northwest partnership is composed of key Washington State partners with a vested interest in promoting immunization. To learn more about Vax Northwest and our work, please see our paper entitled "A public-private partnership addressing vaccine hesitancy in Washington State."Our team initially conducted needs assessment and pilot work to determine the best points of intervention, ultimately creating interventions focusing on parents and providers:

  • Recognizing that most parents immunize their children, Vax Northwest is partnering with parents to share information on immunization with their peers in school, child care, and parent groups.
  • Vax Northwest has developed tools and resources to support health care providers to identify and have productive conversations with parents who are hesitant about immunization. You can read about the results of this intervention in the journal Pediatrics.

We are scientifically evaluating our approach with the goal of sharing what we learn in Washington state and beyond.
