Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Long-term Care Regulation has published a revised COVID-19 Vaccine Data Reporting Rule (PDF). It became effective July 9, 2021, and includes Emergency Communication System Enrollment for nursing facilities (NFs).
The rule requires NFs:
- Report COVID-19 vaccine data within 24 hours.
- Enroll in an emergency communication system.
HHSC will inform NFs when they can begin enrollment.
