BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) (1/15/21) — Kern County Public Health has added a COVID-19 vaccine resource section to their website with the latest information on the availability of the vaccine to residents.
The website includes a vaccine schedule, an interactive map of where to find providers, vaccine information and more. The COVID-19 vaccine schedule on KCPH’s website shows the different phases and tiers so you can know when you’re eligible to receive the vaccine.
The interactive map includes all the sites in Kern County that have been approved to offer COVID-19 vaccinations. Click on a site to view information like hours of operation, fees, vaccine types or to find out if walk-ins are accepted. If you are eligible, you can find the site nearest to you and call that provider to make an appointment. Keep in mind, with the recent expansion of vaccine eligibility for anyone over age 65, appointments and availability of the vaccine are expected to be limited.
On Jan. 15, Kern Public Health released a list of the locations currently providing the vaccine, but officials stress that providers will continue to get added and to check Public Health’s website for an up-to-date list of COVID-19 vaccine providers. Public health notes the website allows you to sort the providers in a list using the “Tools” button in the upper right portion of the web page.
Officials also said Friday that the county would eventually open a vaccination site at the Kern County Fairgrounds, but official details were not ready to be released.
Residents may contact the KCPH’s Call Center at 661-321-3000 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to have their questions answered about COVID-19.
