NHSN Launches New Optional COVID-19 Vaccine Modules


The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) has launched the COVID-19 Vaccine Reporting Modules for residents and healthcare personnel in long term care facilities (LTCFs). These new reporting modules are optional and require only Level 1 SAMS security clearance, which is the same security clearance required to upload data to the COVID-19 LTCFs module.   
The COVID-19 Vaccine Modules can be accessed here. There are training slides available to help LTCFs who choose to upload COVID-19 Vaccine data to this module. COVID-19 Data Collection forms and full Table of Instructions for each form can be found on the Surveillance for Weekly HCP and Resident COVID-19 Vaccination webpage.
