Low coverage by immunization
The state of Washington has a Health Promotion and Immunization Registry System called the “Child Profile” which works to provide the required preventive health care to children. Under this program, parents of children in 0–6 age group are sent educational material to impress upon them the need for promoting preventive health care through immunization. Information about health immunization, child development, safety, nutrition, growth and development and other parenting issues is provided to parents through this literature. Every family is sent a total of 17 mailings, out of which 6 are sent in the first 18 months (once every three months), and the remaining 11 are sent every six months till the child turns 18.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) developed a program called the PRAMS (Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System) in 1987. Under this program, information about “topics related to risk factors before, during, and after pregnancy, risk factors in infancy, their access to prenatal and children’s health care, as well as their input into the content of prenatal care programs” is collected from new mothers within six months of birth by sending them mails and, if they do not respond to mails, by contacting them over the telephone.
The FPRH (Family Planning and Reproductive Health) program provides services in the field of family planning and reproductive health by way of counseling, launching awareness drives and providing screening services throughout the state.

In a ballet shop, a family was doing some shopping when their baby Nolan stopped breathing. The parents frantically yelled for help and the store clerk immediately dialed 911. A former lifeguard, Lesley Reckford, rushed to the scene and performed CPR based on her past training. A few blocks away, Jeff Olson was informed about the incident through an app called Pulse Point. It alerts CPR- trained people about accidents needing their expertise. Being a volunteer EMT, Jeff rushed to baby Nolan and was able to revive the infant together with Lesley. A week after, baby Nolan was able to recover from cardiac arrest, which was triggered by kidney jamming.
