Hospital workers in Fresno County will roll up their sleeves for flu shots or have to wear face masks this fall to comply with a new public health order.

The county is the first in the central San Joaquin Valley to require an annual influenza vaccination for health-care workers in acute-care hospitals.

But other Valley counties could soon follow.

Madera County is drafting a similar order, Von Do-Reynoso, the county’s health director, said last week.
