Disneyland becomes “super” vaccination center
The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California is expected to be the first “super” COVID-19 vaccination site in Orange County, which has quickly become one of the most pandemic-hit areas in America, along with adjacent Los Angeles County.
The site will be up and running later this week, according to the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
“It is important to vaccinate as many willing people as possible against COVID-19 and we need the space for it,” said supervisor Donald P. Wagner in a statement.
Orange County plans to set up five more “Super POD” sites for the vaccine, which official figures would ideally vaccinate thousands of Californians a day.
Vaccinations at the Disneyland site are scheduled using a third-party app developed in partnership with Orange County.
Officials said most citizens who are eligible to receive the vaccine will be contacted through their employers to make an appointment. Walkups are not possible on the Disneyland website.
