Coming in January: New Health Center/Look-Alike Survey Questions

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is adding four questions to its weekly health center COVID-19 survey next month. These will appear beginning in the survey FQHCs receive on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021.

  • How many health center staff members have initiated their COVID-19 immunization series in the last week?
  • How many health center staff members have completed their COVID-19 immunization series in the last week?
  • By race and ethnicity, how many patients have initiated their COVID-19 immunization series in the last week?
  • By race and ethnicity, how many patients have completed their COVID-19 immunization series in the last week?

At the same time, HRSA is removing two existing questions about tests for antibody detection (serology). They are also in the process of updating the survey user guide to be more user-friendly. Visit the user guide, where FQHCs can quickly “jump” to instructions related to a specific question.
