Number of persons in long-term care facilities and nursing homes certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reported to have up to date pneumococcal vaccination
Number of persons in long-term care facilities and nursing homes certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Data include residents of CMS-certified nursing homes who had at least one assessment from January 1 through December 31 of the respective year. Residents have an average of 5 assessments per year. Percentage includes US resident nursing home population (i.e., not adjusted for state or facility). Residents who lived in multiple states during a single year were included once in each state they lived in.
Vaccination status is ascertained by the staff member completing the resident assessment instrument based on medical records when available, self-report by the resident, or report from a resident’s care taker. Residents are considered vaccinated if they were ever reported to be up-to-date with pneumococcal vaccination at any assessment.
