The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) now provides data on COVID-19 vaccine booster shots among residents and staff at nursing homes. The data, which feature both completed vaccination and booster rates for individual facilities, is accessible via the Medicare.gov Care Compare website. State and national averages of completed vaccination and booster shot uptake for the overall US population are also listed online.
Completed vaccination and booster rates are updated every other Thursday with the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).
According to a press release, the current rate of booster shot uptake among nursing home staff is less than the national average for adults older than 18 years; however, the rate among residents is similar to the national average for adults older than 65 years.
The CMS has previously required nursing homes to make COVID-19 vaccines available to their residents and staff, although booster shots are not mandatory.
