CalChiro Recommendations on Mandatory Flu Vaccine for Health Care Providers
September 28, 2020
CalChiro supports individual autonomy of the human body and strongly opposes any attempt to infringe on this right. It is our opinion that the reasonable accommodation of allowing employees to wear a mask during the flu season in lieu of receiving a flu shot, as is the policy in many hospitals, and other clinical settings, should continue to be granted whenever practicable. We also want to remind providers that it is important to understand and abide by all state, federal, and local jurisdictions’ laws & orders. Failure to do so may constitute a violation of the Chiropractic Initiative Act or Regulations and subject your license to disciplinary action by the Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
