During the Indiana Immunization Coalition High Flyers Annual Award Ceremony on Sept 21, 2021, Meridian Health Pediatrics was awarded the “Meningococcal B Vaccine Promotion Award.”
This prestigious award was presented by Dr. Karla Loken. Dr. Loken is a local OB/GYN who lost her sister to meningitis B during college. She has since dedicated her life to medicine and raising awareness of the disease. The award is given to one organization in the state that exemplifies efforts to reduce missed opportunity rates, increase rates of meningitis b vaccination through outreach, innovation, and education.
Congratulations Meridian Health Pediatrics for your hard work to help make our communities healthier!
