In a recent survey, more than one-third of primary care clinicians said their practice was providing COVID-19 vaccines to patients.


However, as the number of primary care practices administering COVID-19 vaccines rises, so do levels of burnout and workloads, according to the survey, which was conducted through a collaboration between the Primary Care Collaborative, Larry A. Green Center and 3rd Conversation.


“Primary care is now a key means for getting shots in Americans’ arms, just as practices are facing pent-up patient demand for care and worsening mental health and social vulnerabilities,” Ann Greiner, president and CEO of the Primary Care Collaborative, said in a press release.


Overall, 657 clinicians across 48 states, Washington D.C. and Guam responded to the survey. Among them, 38% reported that their practice is administering COVID-19 vaccines, 42% reported partnering with public health organizations and 46% reported partnering with local organizations or government officials to prioritize people for vaccination, representing an improvement from earlier surveys.
