Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Data are from the population residing in long-term care facilities or nursing homes certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This includes approximately 98% of all nursing home residents in the United States.
These data do not allow us to tell if a resident lived in multiple states. Thus, a resident will be included not more than once in a state, but may be included in more than one state. Past data show that only about 2-4 percent of residents lived in more than one state during the target period. A resident will be considered vaccinated if they were ever reported to be vaccinated with influenza at any assessment.
Vaccination status is ascertained for resident assessments conducted by the nursing facility staff.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
In 2013, objectives IID-12.5 through 12.8 objectives were consolidated and revised to IID-12.12.
