Dear Mr. Zients and Surgeon General Murthy:

We, the undersigned organizations representing physicians nationwide, urge you to make it simpler for office-based physicians, including primary care physicians and pediatricians, to access COVID-19 vaccines. Office-based physicians are trusted messengers located in every community throughout the United States. They are in the best position to reach the unvaccinated, help people overcome vaccine hesitancy, and determine the need for and timing of additional doses for their elderly patients and those with underlying medical conditions. Primary care physicians are best equipped to administer COVID-19 vaccines to children, alongside other routine immunizations, as soon as they are authorized for patients under age 12. Furthermore, office-based physicians can alleviate the strain on hospital systems as they are facing staffing shortages and a surge of COVID-19 patients.
