Good Afternoon,

In case you missed it, Kern County Public Health put out a press release on January 8, announcing that Kern County residents in ALL THREE TIERS of Phase 1A are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. What that means is, no matter your specialty or practice situation, ALL physicians and their staffs are now eligible to receive vaccination.

For more information on vaccine distribution go to:

If you are in Tiers 1, 2 or 3 of Phase 1A and you and/or your staff have not been vaccinated, click here to find out where to make an appointment.

If you are interested in providing COVID-19 vaccinations in Kern County or have questions about enrollment in COVIDReadi (soon to be CALVax), e-mail the Health Department at

Please be safe, take care of your team, your family and yourself. Together we will get through this.

As always, let me know if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!!!
