NHSN Influenza Vaccination Data Reporting

Mary Madison, RN, RAC-CT, CDP
Clinical Consultant – Briggs Healthcare

Facilities that are required to report annual health care personnel influenza vaccination data into NHSN must do so using the Healthcare Personnel Safety (HPS) Component.

Reporting weekly influenza vaccination data through the NHSN LTC Facility Component does not fulfill this reporting requirement.  

  • CDC is not collecting weekly influenza vaccination data for LTC residents and health care personnel covering the 2022-2023 influenza season. 
  • Please ignore tabs for reporting weekly influenza vaccination data for residents and health care personnel in the LTC Facility Component. The tabs are scheduled to be removed in January 2023 to avoid further confusion. 

The deadline to report the annual health care personnel influenza vaccination summary data through the NHSN HPS Component is May 15, 2023.  CDC training materials and data reporting protocols can be accessed here

Facilities reporting annual health care personnel influenza vaccination summary data currently submit these data directly into the NHSN application. In addition to this method of submitting data, facilities and groups are now able to submit these data via .CSV file upload beginning in December 2022. Instructions for uploading annual flu data via a CSV file, a .CSV file template, and .CSV example file are found here.
