Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Report to Open April 1st
On March 18, 2022, the Department of Health (DOH) issued a Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) to remind providers that the Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Report "will open on Friday, April 1, 2022 and must be electronically submitted ... by June 1, 2022."
The DAL further states that "all facilities covered under New York Codes, Rules and Regulations, Title 10, Section 2.59 (10 NYCRR Section 2.59) are required to document the number and percentage of personnel vaccinated against influenza for the current season and to complete this report upon request of the NYSDOH."
This year’s report covers health care personnel (HCP) employed by or affiliated with facilities or agencies from Oct. 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022. The report may be accessed on the Health Electronic Response Data System (HERDS) here.
The Department will have a pre-recorded webinar to view prior to completing the HERDS report, which can be accessed here.
