This article describes the management of human resource and the vaccination strategies in primary care in twelve European countries in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- All the countries have found solutions to increase their workforce in primary care.
- Other healthcare professionals were incorporated to support family doctors assuming their tasks, under their supervision and coordination.
- The European Commission had a crucial role in the production, purchase and distribution of the vaccines.
- The engagement of primary care in the vaccination campaign has had an unequal participation in the different countries, although the greatest burden has been managed from the government’s public health departments.
