Letter to Governor Northam - February 2021

On the behalf of our members, this letter was sent to Gov. Ralph Northam on February 20 in support of access to the COVID-19 vaccine for primary care physicians and their staff. Secondly, we ask for coordination and collaboration between primary care physicians and community vaccinators such as retail health clinics and pharmacists. We encourage you to write to Gov. Northam if you have these same concerns. Our letter may be used as a template for your correspondence. Read the response from Governor Northam.
