This month, Pediatric Specialists of Virginia (PSV) received a recognition award from the Fairfax County Health Department for contributions in protecting the health of children through our dedicated actions and commitment to immunizations.
Representatives from the Fairfax County Health Department, including Immunization Action Plan Coordinator Christine Carlock, presented the award to PSV’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Laurel Blakemore and Director of Quality and Clinical Services Ruby Higgins.
Under Dr. Rebecca Levorson, who was instrumental in its development and success, PSV’s immunization program made collaborative use of the Virginia Immunization Information System (a statewide system that maintains vaccination history), took an active role providing COVID-19 immunizations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and contributed to protecting the health and well-being of vulnerable children in our community.
Each August, The Virginia Department of Health, the Fairfax County Health Department, and other partners recognize National Immunization Awareness Month. This recognition highlights the importance of routine vaccination for people of all ages, preventing many diseases that were once common.
