FRAZIER PARK, CA (Monday, March 15, 2021 at 12: 45 p.m.)–Online scheduling is available at AdventistHealth.org (click the orange ‘Chat’ icon bottom right of page, and follow prompt questions). [NOTE: Some browsers do not seem to support that chat portal. If you do not see an orange “Chat” icon at AdventistHealth.org, here is an alternate route to the online scheduling platform: go to KernPublicHealth.com, click on “Find a covid-19 vaccination location,” click “OK” in the small eligibility dialog box, and a map will come up. Zoom in toward Tehachapi, and click on the top-most orange dot, which opens a pop-up for Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley. Click on the link in that box, and proceed with these instructions.] If “Covid-19 vaccination” isn’t one of the initial choices offered in a bubble, simply type it the chat box as your question. Then, follow all the prompts (such as “Check eligibility”) and you will ultimately arrive at the Frazier Park location and March 20-21 dates on the scheduling calendar.
Those who received a first dose at the clinic’s February 27-28 visit should by now have received an email or a text to schedule your second dose. NOTE: The sender is not Adventist Health, but rather, the scheduling company, “Gyantt.” Adventist Health’s Josh Pierce said they will have enough Pfizer to administer second doses to those who received their first dose Feb. 27-28. So there will be a dose available for you if you received your vaccination at the clinic’s last Frazier Park visit. Show up with your vaccination card and ID.
Advocates at the Mountain Communities Family Resource Center are standing by to help make online appointments for those without internet access, or those who are encountering difficulties with the platform. Their number is 661.245.4303.
Those without internet access may call 661.771.8400 to attempt making an appointment directly with Adventist Health. We were told by Pierce that phone is a less efficient means of making an appointment, simply due to staffing limitations. You may be asked to leave a voicemail and wait for a return call.
Pierce said that they will bring enough Pfizer vaccine to administer second doses to those who received their first dose in February. He said they will also be bringing a supply of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to offer doses to a whole new batch of people who wish to be vaccinated. They will be welcoming walk-up appointments, based on vaccine availability and scheduled patient lists.
