Travel Immunizations

Remember to pack good health for your trip! Vaccines are your passport to adventure around the world. The Kern County Public Health Services Department provides many immunizations that are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prior to international travel for adults and children.

Check the “Travelers’ Health” section of the CDC’s web site to see exactly what you need for your destination http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel

Schedule an Appointment

Some vaccines require 2-3 doses spaced out over several months. It is best to schedule your appointment with a travel clinic as soon as your itinerary is finalized.

Travel immunizations are offered by appointment each Thursday from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the Immunization Clinic located at 1800 Mt. Vernon in Bakersfield.
