What is the Adventist Health Children’s Mobile Immunizations Program?

Since 1996, Adventist Health Bakersfield has partnered with First 5 Kern to provide free immunizations to Kern County children who are medically uninsured, insured through Medi-Cal or are Native American. We’ve been providing free immunizations to Kern County children as part of our commitment to community health. Today, we’re the only health care system in the area that offers a mobile immunization clinic. Each year we provide about 16,500 vaccinations to local children under age 18.

To receive free vaccinations, children must meet any one of these criteria:

  • Does not have health insurance
  • Enrolled in Medi-Cal (Medi-Cal card is required)
  • American Indian or Alaskan Native

How to access the Children’s Mobile Immunization Program

  • Check the schedule: Each month, we post a calendar in English and Spanish that lists the dates, times and locations of the mobile clinic. Choose the site that works best for you.
  • Bring your child’s immunization card: Even if your child has received vaccinations from us in the past, we need to see the yellow card that lists your child’s immunization history.
  • No appointment or registration necessary: Accessing our mobile clinic is easy. Just show up! Immunizations are given on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Look for us at convenient locations: We normally park our mobile unit in a high-visibility area, such as a shopping center or park. And we try to set up close to bus stops for anyone who uses public transportation.
  • Flu shots for Mom and Dad: In addition to free immunizations for kids, we also offer complimentary flu shots for parents during flu season.
  • Referrals to AHPN providers: If your child needs care beyond an immunization, we will be happy to help you find an Adventist Health Physicians Network provider to serve you. Our diverse group of multilingual doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants offers compassionate, expert care at three convenient locations.
