The Texas Health and Human Services Commission Long-term Care Regulation (HHSC-LTCR) has published a revised COVID-19 Vaccine Data Reporting Rule (PDF). It became effective January 6, 2022, and includes Emergency Communication System Enrollment for nursing facilities.
The rule requires Nursing Facilities (NFs) to:
- Report COVID-19 vaccine data within 24 hours.
- Enroll in an emergency communication system.
Email LTCRPolicy@hhs.texas.gov or call 512-438-3161 for questions about the rules.
HHSC will inform NFs when they can begin enrollment.
