Opinion: Health Care Worker Vaccine Requirement – Booster Deferral (AFL-21-34.3)

Here is Clearpol’s opinion on AFL-21-34.3, which can be found on our website here alongside the AFL text:

This AFL implements the 2/22/2022 CA Public Health Order that allows SNF healthcare personnel (HCP) to defer booster administration for up to 90 days from the date of clinical diagnosis or first positive test, which in some situations may extend the booster dose requirement beyond 3/1/2022.

It requires at least twice weekly COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated exempt HCP and booster-eligible HCP who have not yet received their booster. HCP not yet eligible for boosters or who show proof of infection must be in compliance no later than 15 days after the recommended timeframe for receiving the booster dose. It supersedes AFL 21-34.2.
