CDC names Society member 2018 Childhood Immunization Champion; DHS recognizes ‘BigShots’

The Wisconsin Medical Society congratulates member Jeffrey Moore, MD, of the Marshfield Clinic Merrill Center, who was named a 2018 Childhood Immunization Champion by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Doctor Moore was nominated by Lincoln County Public Health Nurse Jennifer Johnson, who cited his leadership, collaboration and tireless work to promote disease preventing vaccines. He was selected from a pool of health professionals, community advocates and other immunization leaders for making a significant contribution to public health in Wisconsin.

“Vaccinations are vitally important to the health and well-being of Wisconsin’s children and the public, and encouraging childhood vaccinations is just the right thing to do,” said Dr. Moore in this press release.

In addition, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services has recognized 50 health care providers from around the state with the second annual Wisconsin “BigShot Awards.” The award is given to health care providers who vaccinate 90 percent or more of their young patients.
