CDC: New changes coming in May! NHSN Weekly COVID-19 Vaccination Cumulative Summary Forms will be Revised

What are the main changes?


  • COVID-19 vaccination data will no longer be reported by vaccine manufacturer for questions on primary vaccine series and additional/booster doses.
  • Questions on vaccine supply will be removed.
  • Completing a monthly reporting plan for the COVID-19 Vaccination Module in the Healthcare Personnel Safety Component will no longer be required. Instead, upon saving or uploading data, users will agree to the following:
    • The data reported are consistent with definitions outlined in NHSN surveillance protocols (including tables of instructions and frequently asked questions).
    • The data will be sent to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to fulfill CMS quality reporting requirements (when applicable).


Adding a question for facilities to report the cumulative number of individuals who are up to date with COVID-19 vaccination.  

How should I prepare?

Facilities should develop or update data tracking mechanisms to collect weekly COVID-19 vaccination data on healthcare personnel for the additional questions.

How can I learn more?

CDC will conduct a training webinar to review these changes for the Healthcare Personnel Safety Component on May 25, 2022, 2:00 PM Eastern Time.
