TICKETS TO BE GIVEN IN PAIRS TO THE FIRST 50 INDIVIDUALS RECEIVING A VACCINE AT BC’S AUGUST 7TH COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC

Bakersfield College’s Student Health and Wellness Center will be giving away 100 free tickets, in sets of 2, to the first 50 individuals to get vaccinated during the on-campus vaccine clinic on August 7th. The clinic is open to the public and will operate at Bakersfield College’s main campus (1801 Panorama Drive) in the Veterans Resource Center on August 7, 2021 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. The clinic is scheduled to distribute only the Moderna Vaccine.

Dean of Students at Bakersfield College, Dr. Nicky Damania, is thankful for this extra incentive and fun opportunity to encourage individuals to get vaccinated. “Bakersfield College’s nursing students have worked incredibly hard over the past 6 months to help vaccinate our community, so it was really great to have Mechanics Bank Arena step forward and reach out with this awesome incentive,” he said.

For those who cannot make the August 7th clinic, but still wish to receive a vaccine, the BC Student Health and Wellness Center is administering the Moderna vaccine on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9:00AM and 3:00PM and the Janssen vaccine on Thursdays between 9:00AM and 3:00PM each week on campus.

Walk-ins are accepted at all clinics or participants may register for an appointment using the MyTurn website or by calling (833) 422-4255.
