Silver Syringe Awards

The 17th Annual Silver Syringe Awards

Any individual and/or organization that works to protect Nevadans from vaccine-preventable diseases has a shot at winning a Silver Syringe Award. But only the best of the best actually achieve this honor. The 17th Annual Silver Syringe Awards is being held in conjunction with National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) and will have event locations in Reno and Las Vegas. 

There are 12 distinct Silver Syringe categories for nomination and each category has two winners: Southern and Northern. Each category winner is chosen by a committee of Immunize Nevada partners who work daily in healthcare and support our mission of promoting health and preventing disease. The 17th Annual Silver Syringe Winners will be recognized at events in both Reno and Las Vegas during National Infant Immunization Week.

Silver Syringe began in 1998 as a way to celebrate Nevada’s immunization successes and champions. Today, the event has become a statewide tradition for Nevada’s immunization and healthcare stakeholders. This annual event allows for an opportunity to honor those immunization champions that provide excellent service, but may not otherwise be recognized.
