Not yet. In early August there was widespread concern when the California Department of Health issued an Order on August 5, 2021 requiring “all” health care providers to vaccinate.
The Order stated that “hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and other health care facility types…can have severe consequences for vulnerable populations, including hospitalization, severe illness, and death. That vaccination against COVID-19 is the most effective means of preventing infection…"
After the Order was issued, the California Department of Health restated their Order stating that chiropractic offices and acupuncture offices are not included.
Of course the California Department of Health can include chiropractors and acupuncturists anytime without notice. Cal-Chiro was instrumental in this revision of the original order protecting chiropractic. To get the copy of the Order, email email@example.com.
