Vax Northwest, a public-private partnership created to ensure all children and communities in Washington are protected from preventable, life-threatening diseases.

The Group Health Foundation in partnership with the IACW, WA State Department of HealthPublic Health – Seattle & King County and Seattle Children’s Hospital completed a documentary on community immunity and vaccine hesitancy.

The coalition—including Group Health, Seattle Children’s, the Washington State Department of Health, WithinReach and the Community Pediatric Foundation of Washington—was formed to provide parents with the information they need when making decisions about vaccinating their children.
