Mandates boost vaccination rates among health care workers in California

California’s requirement for all health care workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, which took effect Thursday, appears to have compelled tens of thousands of unvaccinated employees to get shots in recent weeks, bolstering the case for employer mandates. … Similarly high compliance rates were reported by Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto where officials said 97 percent of 15,000 workers were now vaccinated … and at UCI Health in Orange County, where officials said the university and state mandates have boosted vaccination rates among nurses to 95 percent.
