PCC Webinar: Rolling Up Our Sleeves: The Effort to Vaccinate Americans

As millions of people across the country roll up their sleeves to receive COVID-19 shots, many sectors are also rolling up their sleeves and getting to work in this massive undertaking. Primary care has very much been in the mix—answering patient questions, helping to overcome vaccine hesitancy and beginning to administer the vaccines. We have the experience, assets and skills to help meet the country’s vaccine goals. But for widespread immunity to happen rapidly and efficiently, it will take coordination and cooperation by primary care and other sectors. And there are many challenges, requirements and considerations, from patient concerns about the vaccine, to differences in vaccine effectiveness, to data collection and sharing, and more recently, issues related to virus mutations. In this webinar, four experts provide different perspectives on the role of primary care and other sectors as the distribution of the vaccines ramps up.
