National Consumer Voice: CMS Posts Interim Final Rule on COVID-19 Immunization Requirements for Residents and Staff

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted an interim final rule today, with a comment period, in the Federal Register.  The rule requires that facilities educate residents, resident representatives, and staff about the benefits and side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine and offer the vaccine to residents and staff when available.  They are also required to report the vaccination status of residents and staff to the CDC on a weekly basis.
