The team was awarded the Callie Van Tornhout Infant Immunization Award 2019 for their efforts to immunize children against Pertussis. They also received the High Flyer Award 2019 – Rotavirus Immunization Provider Award for their work to increase the rate of rotavirus vaccination through outreach, innovation and reducing missed opportunities.
