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."
