Great Plains QIN updated the GPQIN Electronic Vaccination Tracking Log to include field entries for the COVID-19 boosters. This Excel tracking log was designed to be used as a “Quick Review” for the MDS person and/or infection preventionist to access a listing of residents and their vaccination status for influenza, pneumococcal and COVID-19. The tool includes sections (tabs) for several years (2021 -2024) and also a cumulative ‘At A Glance’ tab which offers a yearly graphing feature for vaccinations given. The resource section was also updated to include booster recommendations and updates.
“The electronic vaccination tool has been very valuable for our organization; especially the tool’s formulas. We use the spreadsheet to pull data for NHSN reports. We also added a few extra tabs to the tool to include information needed for our Infection Prevention Control plan, which has been very helpful,” shared Sheila Geffre, RN, an infection specialist and associate quality strategist with Sunset Drive in Mandan, North Dakota.
Please note: This vaccination tracking tool is not to be confused with the NHSN developed Tracking Sheets for COVID 19 vaccinations (resident and healthcare worker) that may be be used for NHSN data inputs.
