The Kern High School District has hosted several mobile vaccination sites at its schools this spring in an effort to get students and the community vaccinated in the fight against COVID-19.

Kern Medical is hosting two COVID-19 vaccination clinics this upcoming week in partnership with the Kern High School District. The clinics are available to students 16 and older and their families and any community members who would like to walk in.

On Tuesday, Mira Monte High School is hosting a vaccination clinic from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

On Wednesday, North High School is hosting a clinic from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Kern Medical is offering the Pfizer vaccine at these clinics. Kern Medical will return to these sites in three weeks to offer patients their second dose. Staff said that doses have yet to run out at any of these locations.
