Tidewater Children's Associates (TCA) maintains impeccable standards of immunization pediatric care. With three practice locations serving the Southeastern Hampton Roads community, Tidewater Children's Associates has provided community leadership on immunization advocacy for over 40 years.
TCA has been using the Virginia Immunization Information System (VIIS) since 2009. TCA ensures their patients are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases by utilizing reporting features in the VIIS registry. As a result, the Chesapeake, Norfolk and Suffolk offices have maintained immunization coverage rates of at least 90% for the last four years.
Office Manager Karen Price believes TCA's success can be attributed to having a well trained work force. As a former nurse manager, Ms. Price is a spokesperson, advocate, and educator for immunization policy advancements. As advocates and educators, she and her team promote timely vaccinations and are readily prepared to address immunization concerns expressed by the families they serve.
Immunization Champions are nominated by VVFC staff.
