Reporting And Data

Influenza Vaccination Among Healthcare Personnel - for Skilled Nursing Facilities

Latest Update: May 10, 2023

Reporting Information

Facilities must report annual HCP influenza vaccination summary data through the NHSN HPS Component. CDC is no longer collecting weekly influenza vaccination data for residents and healthcare personnel through the Long-term Care (LTC) Facility Component, and these tabs were removed in the NHSN application. Therefore, reporting weekly influenza vaccination data through the LTC Facility Component does not fulfill this reporting requirement.

Responsible Party

Who Must Report?

All CMS-certified skilled nursing facilities.


When Do I Report?

On or about May 15th of each year.


How Do I Report?

Reporting is done through the NHSN Healthcare Personnel Safety (HPS) Component.


Why Should I Report?

CMS-certified skilled nursing facilities can be fined for failure to comply this this requirement.


The legal mandate requiring reporting

The Influenza Vaccination Coverage among HCP measure was finalized in the FY 2023 SNF PPS Final Rule which was published in the Federal Register on August 3, 2022.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals. The reporting requirements and legal mandates on this site are not an exhaustive list and Nevada Rural Hospital Partners, Inc. bears no responsibility or liability for any hospitals' or providers' failure to comply with Federal or State laws or regulations.
