Survey: Few primary care practices prepared to distribute COVID-19 vaccines
Updated: Apr 18
Earlier this week, Healio Primary Care reported results from a survey conducted by the Larry A. Green Center in collaboration with the Primary Care Collaborative and 3rd Conversation. An excerpt is included below:
Among surveyed clinicians, just 5% reported that their practice has a full COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan.
Additionally, just 34% of clinicians reported that their practice has enough staff to administer a COVID-19 vaccine, and one in five practices said that they cannot pay for the vaccine or the storage required for it.
The survey also found that just 23% of clinicians knew where they will be getting COVID- 19 vaccines from, and 20% knew how to store the vaccine once they receive it.
