This report is part of a collaboration between Phreesia, a health care technology firm, the Commonwealth Fund, and Harvard University researchers. The authors of the report interviewed primary care providers at practices that use Phreesia technology and have taken part in vaccination campaigns about the barriers and challenges they encountered to participating in these campaigns. The article offers take-aways for policymakers and other providers on how to reduce barriers to vaccination in primary care, which will be critical to promoting COVID-19 vaccine uptake in future years. The practice strategy this article is focused on is promoting vaccine access and uptake.
