NH DHHS - Health Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Give Third Annual Immunization Champion Award

Concord, NH - The Immunization Program in the Division of Public Health

Services at the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services

(DHHS) celebrates the third New Hampshire Childhood Immunization Champion,

Dr. Everett Lamm. He is a pediatrician at Core Pediatrics in Exeter, New

Hampshire.



The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Childhood Immunization

Champion Award is an annual award given jointly by the CDC Foundation and

CDC to recognize individuals who are doing an exemplary job or going above

and beyond to promote or foster childhood immunizations in their

communities.



Dr. Lamm is a respected pediatrician and vaccine advocate who has worked

tirelessly to immunize his patients and spread the word about the

importance of vaccinations. Dr. Lamm is a sought after speaker who has been

educating parents, educators and healthcare providers through conferences,

community forums and panels for years. He also serves on the New Hampshire

Immunization Advisory Committee and the New Hampshire Vaccine Association.

He is always working to dispel fear and misunderstanding about vaccines to

parents, grandparents, teachers, aunts, uncles, and caregivers.



“It is an honor to receive this prestigious award as New Hampshire leads

the nation in immunizing children.” said Lamm, “My colleagues and I work

hard to immunize all of our patients to reduce their risks of getting

disease. Talking with families about vaccines is always time well spent.”



“It is dedicated physicians such as Dr. Lamm on the front lines of patient

health who make New Hampshire’s state-wide immunization program a success,”

said Dr. José Montero, Public Health Director at DHHS. “We are grateful for

his creative thinking and willingness to be a role model and spokesperson.

His hard work and dedication are a tremendous asset to the greater Exeter

region and the State.”
