Mandatory Vaccination or Masking for Health Care Personnel

In 2014, the County Public Health Officer issued an order mandating that all licensed acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, long-term care facilities, ambulatory and community clinics, and ambulance providers in San Diego County require their healthcare personnel to receive an annual influenza vaccination, or, if they decline, to wear a mask while in contact with patients or working in patient care areas during each annual influenza season. In the order, the influenza season is defined as November 1 to March 31 of the following year. The order and resources that may be used in a vaccination program for healthcare personnel may be found below.

Questions about the order may be directed to the County Immunization Program at (866) 358-2966 or email to info@sdiz.org.
