Testing and Vaccine Information

College of the Desert has partnered with Borrego Health to host FREE employee and student COVID-19 vaccination and PCR testing clinics on our campuses during the Fall 2021 Semester and the upcoming Winter 2022 Intersession. Pfizer vaccination boosters are also available through Borrego Health. If you would prefer to have the Moderna vaccine booster instead, please call Borrego Health at 833.624.1097 to inform them of this preference. Please note that the Johnson and Johnson/Janssen vaccine booster is not available at this time.

FREE COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

Open to all College of the Desert students, faculty, staff, and community members ages 15 and up, these clinics are being held inside the Multipurpose Room within the Cravens Student Services Center at the Palm Desert campus. Please wait in your car until your appointment time or until notified. In addition, please note that walk-ins may be accommodated, but it’s best to make an appointment to avoid large crowds.

Vaccinations are free and available regardless of immigration status or insurance coverage.
