National Healthcare Safety Network Training
The CDC is updating and simplifying the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) modules on weekly reporting of COVID-19 vaccination data for LTC facility residents and healthcare personnel. To review these updates to the NHSN Weekly COVID-19 Vaccination Modules for LTC facilities, NHSN will host one live training webinar and four re-broadcasts of the webinar.
These trainings will strengthen facilities’ understanding of reporting weekly data and will give facilities updated information on the following:
• Definition of eligible healthcare personnel
• Medical contraindications and exclusions for COVID-19 vaccination
• Streamlined COVID-19 vaccine supply questions
The training will also review reporting that is no longer required or requested:
• Counts of vaccine adverse events
• History of previous SARS-CoV-2 infection
In addition to introducing these updates, the training will review how to tabulate weekly cumulative vaccinations. Cumulative vaccination data include the number of individuals who have ever received COVID-19 vaccination (at the facility or elsewhere) since it became available in December 2020.
The training will also be posted to the NHSN website. Facilities can access resources here: https://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/ltc/weekly-covid-vac/index.html.
