CMS Announces New Tool to View Nursing Home Vaccination Rates

September 21, 2021

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today a new feature on Medicare Care Compare that will make it easier to check COVID-19 vaccination rates for nursing home staff and residents.  Search a nursing home's zip code, click on the name of the nursing home, then scroll down to click "View COVID-19 Vaccination Rates" to see the data.

Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing homes have been required to report weekly COVID-19 vaccination data for both residents and staff since May, and CMS has been posting the information on the CMS COVID-19 Nursing Home Data website.  The new tool on Care Compare is in addition to the data being posted on the COVID-19 Nursing Home Data website.

For more information, read the press release from CMS.
