April 13, 2021: Bakersfield College’s Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) has postponed its clinics which were on track to distribute the Johnson and Johnson Jannsen vaccine due to the CDC recommendation to pause administration of the J&J vaccine.
If you or a family member received a J&J Jannsen vaccine within the last week and are experiencing any health issues, it is advised to meet with your primary care doctor for further information.
BC’s SHWC is continuing to accept appointments for any clinics distributing the Moderna vaccine and second doses. These clinics and appointments can be found on myturn.ca.gov.
The BC Student Health and Wellness Center is now hosting multiple vaccination clinics for any eligible individuals who meet the COVID-19 Vaccine Schedule per Kern County Public Health. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 661-395-4336.

The BC COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic planning team is working on multiple vaccination events that are contingent upon vaccine availability. We are working with Kern County Public Health and other providers to be able to administer the vaccine to our community via the eligible COVID-19 vaccination schedule. As the vaccine becomes more available, the campus is looking to be utilized mass vaccination clinic sites. We also bring pop-up clinics to both Delano and Arvin.
