Published September 28, 2020

Facing backlash from opponents, including some nurses, Shasta County public health officials rescinded their order that all health care workers get a flu shot this season.

Health Officer Dr. Karen Ramstrom announced her decision Thursday morning in a news release issued by the county Health & Human Services Agency.

“The Board of Supervisors and I appreciate Dr. Ramstrom’s commitment to helping ensure our local health care workers and patients are protected against the flu and COVID-19,” Shasta County Executive Officer Matt Pontes said in the statement.
