Title: Influenza Vaccination Standard for Certain Participating Providers and Suppliers (CMS-3213-F) 
Abstract: This final rule requires certain Medicare and Medicaid providers and suppliers to offer all patients an annual influenza vaccination, unless medically contraindicated or unless the patient or patient's representative or surrogate declined vaccination. This rule is intended to increase the number of patients receiving annual vaccination against seasonal influenza and to decrease the morbidity and mortality rate from influenza. This rule also requires certain providers and suppliers to develop policies and procedures that will allow them to offer vaccinations for pandemic influenza in case of a future pandemic influenza event for which a vaccine may be developed. This rule is economically significant.
