Covid-19 Vaccine Advisory & Response: Vaccine Eligibility & Appointments Update (4.5.21)

Effective immediately, all individuals 16 years old and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination in Kern County.

Visit to register or call the Kern County Public Health Call Center at 661-321-3000 for appointments and assistance.

Vaccine supply remains limited. If vaccine appointments are unavailable locally in MyTurn when you first register, sign up to get notified and check daily.

RRH will be opening up some clinics soon on MyTurn, pending confirmation of our vaccine supply. However, the Kern County Fairgrounds Mass Vaccination Clinic has open appointments this week from Wednesday through Sunday. At this ADA compliant clinic, vaccines are free, no ID is required. We encourage those who are able to make the trip to receive their vaccine.

The best vaccine is the vaccine that becomes first available to you.
