ST. PETERSBURG – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has named Dr. David Berman, pediatric infectious disease specialist at All Children¹s Hospital, the CDC Childhood Immunization Champion for the state of Florida.

The CDC recognized Berman as a champion for Florida because of his immunization leadership in the community, solutions to immunization challenges as well as his advocacy with legislators regarding the importance of childhood immunization.

Through a vaccine hesitancy educational grant, Berman helped teach physicians and the community about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. He is the co-founder of the Pinellas Immunization Team for Community Health, a community-based initiative to improve immunization rates for children under 2. Since the formation of PITCH, overall immunization rates in Pinellas County have increased nearly 10 percentage points.

In addition to his work in Pinellas County, Berman also conducted a national survey on pediatricians’ vaccine safety concerns to better understand physician attitudes and has presented these findings at professional meetings. He is a member of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society Vaccine Advocacy Committee. Berman along with PITCH and Meningitis Angels, recently travelled to Tallahassee to educate legislators about the importance of immunizations.
