PHOTO GALLERY: Kern Public Health Back-to-School Vaccine Clinic

Kern County Department of Public Health has set up a vaccine clinic inside the Kern County Fairgrounds for this year's back-to-school immunization drive. Back to school means long days over the next two weeks for Ann Walker, as Kern Public Health's immunization coordinator, but she wouldn't have it any other way.

The clinic, with dozens of people from Kern Public Health, estimate around 1,000 child, and more than a few parents, will receive vaccines from the start of the clinic last week to the ending date at noon on Aug. 19.

There's no time like the present to schedule the state-required vaccinations for any K-12 students in the family, said Michelle Corson, spokeswoman for Kern Public Health. Visits can be scheduled by calling 661-321-3000, and walk-ins are accepted as well.
