Members Encouraged to Submit MDH Vaccine Survey Weekly
On January 20, 2021 by Jeff Bostic
Starting last week, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is conducting a weekly survey on vaccination in long-term care settings. The survey allows MDH and the provider associations to track the progress of vaccination of residents and staff in sites across the state. Providers are asked to visit the vaccine REDcap survey link each Wednesday to updated their information.
In the first week, approximately two-thirds of SNFs reported their data. Reporting was quite a bit lower among assisted living, but as more clinics happen in those sites MDH is expecting their response rate to pick up.
In order to ensure that this information is complete and current, MDH asks all long-term care providers to incorporate filling out the survey into their vaccination clinic plans and processes.
We would like to thank all the members who are submitting this key data as we partner with MDH to ensure a successfully vaccination effort in our long-term care community.
