In an effort to accelerate the countywide vaccination effort, Kern County Public Health is partnering with Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley to launch a mobile vaccination clinic beginning Monday, Feb. 15.
This mobile clinic will focus on eastern Kern County communities such as Mojave, California City, Rosamond, and Boron, as these rural areas have limited access to vaccination sites, Kern Public Health said in a news release.
Public health said the mobile clinic will also go elsewhere based on the needs of the county in the future.
The mobile clinic can administer roughly 80 doses per day on 7-day per week basis.
The mobile clinic will be funded with CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds and will increase the total vaccine doses available in Kern County. Adventist Health is going to provide all of the vaccine doses for this mobile clinic from their Multi-County Entity allotment not already allocated to Kern County.
Currently, vaccinations are being administered countywide through approximately 90 private medical providers and businesses. Also, Public Health recently launched a mass vaccination site at the Kern County Fairgrounds.
To schedule an appointment with the mobile clinic, call (661)771-8400 or visit Adventist Health’s appointment portal: https://web.production.gyantts.com/?org=adv-fd.
