Dr. John Dunn recognized as CDC Childhood Immunization Champion for the state

John Dunn​Northshore Medical Center pediatrician Dr. John Dunn (pictured left) recently received the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) 2016 Childhood Immunization Champion Award for Washington state.

This annual honor is given jointly by the CDC Foundation and the CDC to recognize individuals in each state who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization.

"Ensuring that every child is vaccinated on schedule is critical to protecting our children, schools, and communities from outbreaks of serious diseases," says Amanda Cohn, MD, a pediatrician at the CDC and the executive secretary of the advisory committee on immunization practices. "We could not achieve our goal of protecting children without those committed individuals who promote immunizations at the state and local levels."

In addition to providing top notch care to our patients, Dr. Dunn is a member of the Washington Vaccine Association, the Vaccine Advisory Committee, and the Vax Northwest Oversight Committee and also chairs Group Health's Immunization Program.

Dr. Dunn was recently promoted to assistant medical director of preventive care and is frequently recognized by the community as a "Top Doc." Last year, he did several local media promotions on the importance of flu vaccines.
