STOCKTON -- Delta College is pleased to announce that beginning Wednesday, March 10, the COVID-19 testing area in the Shima parking lots will expand to include vaccinations for members of the general public who qualify based on current public health tiers.
Please do not simply show up for a vaccination. No walk-ups will be accepted. This event is for the general public and is not exclusively for Delta College employees, family members, or students.
Delta is very excited to be a part of this community-focused event that will help bring us out of this pandemic and return us to normalcy. Please review the following information for more details on the event, and information on traffic flow, road closures, and parking.

First, a reminder that COVID-19 testing will continue Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., in the Shima 2 parking lot. This has not changed.
