Chapter Member, Jane Wilkov, MD, Receives Immunization Champion Award!
Congratulations to Jane Wilcov, MD (Dekalb Pediatric Center – Decatur, GA) for receiving the 2022 Immunization Champion Award. The Immunization Champion Award recognizes individuals who are working at the local level. The award honors those doing an exemplary job or going above and beyond to promote, or foster adult and childhood immunizations in their communities. Below is the excerpt from the Immunization Champion 2022 Award page:
Jane Wilkov, MD, enrolled her practice Dekalb Pediatric Center as the first VFC/COVID vaccine program provider in early 2021. Dr. Wilkov and her team worked diligently to vaccinate parents, grandparents, other family members, and eligible members of their community. Dr. Wilkov is an active member of the GA Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and partnered with the Georgia Department of Health to recruit other providers to enroll in the COVID program, which led to the enrollment of many private practices. “The passion this provider and her team possess to assure the health and well-being of not only their patient population, but their entire community, has shined brightly through their efforts.”
