The national AMA survey polled 300 physicians, including primary care doctors and specialists, between June 3-8. It’s the first survey to specifically collect data on practicing physicians’ COVID-19 vaccination rates, according to the AMA. The survey results show an increase of more than 20% for physicians who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 compared to a May 2021 Medscape poll. “Practicing physicians across the country are leading by example, with an amazing uptake of the COVID-19 vaccines,” said AMA President Susan R. Bailey, M.D. in a statement. There were no significant differences in physician vaccination rates across various demographic groups, including: PCP vs Specialist, region, gender, age, and race. However non-Hispanic physicians (97%) were more likely to have been vaccinated than Hispanic physicians (84%).
