Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Report Due May 1st

The Department of Health (DOH) issued a reminder to nursing homes, certified home health agencies, licensed home care services agencies, hospice, adult day health care, and hospital providers to complete the annual Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Report by Mon., May 1, 2017.

The message states:

As soon as possible, please log in to the Health Commerce System and enter your facility or agency's data in the Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Report. If your facility has already saved or submitted data in the report, please take this opportunity to review the data for accuracy and update or correct data as necessary. The report can be updated and re-submitted as many times as necessary until May 1, 2017. Users are reminded to first Save, then Review and Submit and finally press the Submit to DOH button in order to successfully submit data to the NYSDOH. Pressing the Save button alone does NOT submit data to NYSDOH.

This report will close on May 1, 2017 and it must be submitted through the Health Electronic Response Data System (HERDS) on the Health Commerce System. Questions about the Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Report should be directed to the NYSDOH Bureau of Immunization at either (518) 473-4437 or immunize@health.ny.gov. Technical questions about the report or on the use of HERDS should be directed to the Health Emergency Preparedness Program at (518) 408-5163 or hseppny@health.ny.gov.
