Big Shots Awards

Nevada's Big Shots

Each December, Immunize Nevada celebrates our coalition accomplishments and recognizes the immunization heroes and influencers among us. As part of the annual National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW), Immunize Nevada is proud to recognize flu heroes across Nevada. Previously named the InFLUencer Awards, we now recognize our state’s Big Shots who work tirelessly to protect the health of Nevadans and prevent influenza.
