Health Leaders Media

California law requires the state to publish healthcare worker vaccination rates for each acute care hospital by March, 2010 but still has not done so, according to a report by Consumers Union, which has obtained some information through a Public Records Act request.

The consumer group said in a report released Friday that the state Department of Public Health released only aggregate and range statewide percentages, which revealed that as of the 2008-2009 influenza season, vaccination compliance among hospital workers was 52.4%.
