Influenza Vaccination Data Reporting for Long Term Care Facilities

 

​With flu season approaching, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has implemented two new features in the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). Long term care facilities will now be able to track weekly influenza vaccination data beginning with the 2020-2021 influenza season for both healthcare personnel and residents. To provide detailed information about the new tracking information, the CDC will host two webinars on October 1 and October 6. You are encouraged to register in advance for the webinars as spaces are limited. You can learn more about reporting weekly influenza vaccination data here.
