BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Kaiser Permanente, Dignity Health and Adventist Health are brining a series of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics to Kern County communities beginning May 8.

The three healthcare providers have been operating a vaccination hub at the CSU Bakersfield campus since late March, but it will end on May 14. Taking its place will be mobile vaccination clinics taking vaccines directly to where people live and work and to areas where there may be vaccine hesitancy.
