The Allegheny County Immunization Coalition (ACIC) appreciates volunteers like Dr. Zavaras who believe in the importance of vaccinations.
Supporting our organization for 10 years has not gone unnoticed and we applaud the work you do every day to vaccinate your patients and educate their families. The poem below says it best!
Valuable is the work you do
Outstanding in how you always come through
Loyal, sincere, and full of good cheer
Untiring in your efforts throughout the year
Notable are the contributions you make
Trustworthy in every project you take
Eager to reach your every goal
Effective in the way you fulfill your role
Ready with a smile like a shining star
Special and wonderful — that’s what you are!

Below is what Dr. Zavaras had to say when asked to describe her role or interest in promoting immunizations at work, home, or in the community.
An important goal of the STO-ROX Pediatric Department is preventive medicine. We promote immunizations to protect our patients from serious diseases. We try not to miss any opportunities to immunize our infants, young children, and adolescents. Our nurses and I educate the families in our office about the importance of immunizations and provide parents with the addresses of reliable web sites for more information if needed. Additionally, I enjoy being a member of the ACIC, who has promoted immunizations in our community for ten years now!
Thank you Dr. Zavaras!
