CMS posted Version 18 of this toolkit on February 3, 2021. 

In case I haven’t mentioned this before, this toolkit has been updated twice each month and the latest version is always found beneath the hyperlink I provided above.

A refresher of what’s provided in this toolkit is found in the TOC and the Objective statement:

“This toolkit catalogs the many innovative solutions designed at the state level to protect our nation’s vulnerable nursing home residents during the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Beginning in October 2020, the toolkit includes up-to-date information, guidance, and innovative programs designed to increase vaccine use against influenza virus, pneumococcus (bacterium), and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.”
