William Mercer has been honored ..., 26 June 2015 [cached]
William Mercer has been honored by the West Virginia Immunization Network for his efforts to protect children's health in Ohio County and West Virginia.
The network honored Mercer and six other organizations and individuals during its 10th annual WIN awards dinner in Charleston on June 16.
Mercer was presented with the Childhood and Adolescent Immunization Award, given for educating, promoting and working tirelessly to improve childhood and adolescent immunization rates in the community. The latest Centers for Disease Control data on childhood immunization rates in West Virginia shows increases for both infant and toddler rates as well as those for adolescents.
Mercer has been the county health officer for the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department for 17 years and serves as the medical director of Peterson Rehabilitation Hospital in Wheeling. A lifelong resident of Ohio County, he also has been in private practice in Wheeling since 1982. After graduating from West Virginia University School of Medicine in 1979, he returned to Wheeling to complete a residency and open his current practice.
Health department officials said Mercer has made a lifelong career out of protecting his community's health and promoting vaccination as a vital role on this effort.
"Dr. Mercer was recognized for his dedication to immunization and other public health programs for the people of the city and county in which he has called home all of his life. As the medical officer, Dr. Mercer has overseen clinical services for one of the state's major local health departments and done so with distinction," said Jeffrey Neccuzi, director of the West Virginia Division of Immunization Services.
Mercer has devoted considerable time and expertise to the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department as well the Peterson Rehabilitation Hospital in addition to his many patients in his private practice."

"Certainly, I am very pleased it has come out now," said Dr. William Mercer, medical director of the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department.
It states the only way to protect nonsmokers from the dangerous chemicals in secondhand smoke is to eliminate smoking indoors , which was the goal of the Wheeling-Ohio County Clean Indoor Air Regulation, according to Mercer.
However, Mercer said he believes this report is going to spur more counties in West Virginia , as well as more states in the nation , to enact strict clean indoor air regulations to cut down on the amount of secondhand smoke to which people are exposed.
"What you are going to see from this, with it coming from the federal government, is a lot of counties in West Virginia making regulations similar to ours," Mercer said, adding that he believes the state of Ohio may see enough support as a result of this report to be able to pass a statewide regulation.
"Here in Ohio County, it has been a year.We have had our regulation in place for one year," Mercer said."I feel it is working very well, and we will continue to see it improve. ... Before we had 75 percent compliance, and over the past several weeks, I have been meeting with the individual bar owners who were previously not in compliance."Mercer pointed out many of these bar owners now say they are going to comply, and Mercer believes the county will reach a more than 90 percent compliance rate.
