Updates November 2, 2020 Health Alert

Health Officers for Alameda County and the City of Berkeley are updating their joint Health Officer order mandating that all licensed health care facilities in Alameda County and the City of Berkeley require their health care workers (HCW) to receive an annual influenza vaccination. This Order mandates that health care facilities implement a process for requiring HCW to receive vaccination unless a HCW can produce sufficient documentation to obtain a medical exemption. Unlike in previous years, mask wearing is not an adequate substitution for vaccination under this Order.

Health Officers for Alameda County and the City of Berkeley are clarifying their previous joint order (No. 20-16) mandating that all licensed health care facilities in Alameda County and the City of Berkeley require their health care workers (HCW) to receive an annual influenza vaccination. In accordance with previous years, this updated Order includes an exemption for HCW who opt to not receive influenza vaccination due to religious beliefs.
