Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will be the first super site for COVID-19 vaccinations in Orange County when the theme park becomes part of the fight against the global pandemic.
The site will be able to vaccinate thousands of residents daily, according to the county.
“The Disneyland Resort, the largest employer in the heart of Orange County, has stepped up to host the county’s first Super POD site – undertaking a monumental task in our vaccination distribution process,” Chairman Andrew Do said.
“We truly appreciate the support of the Orange County Fire Authority, our cities, and our residents as we continue to rollout COVID-19 vaccinations throughout the county.”
The site will follow the state’s guidelines and only provide shots to people eligible for vaccines, only permitting people in “Phase 1a” to receive vaccines. This group includes anyone who is age 75 and older, according to the county’s statement.
“Coronavirus has brought both a public health crisis and economic devastation,” said Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu in the county’s statement.
“With this super site, we will begin to overcome both. Every vaccination done in Anaheim will help to save lives and speed the reopening and recovery of our city,” he added.
The ‘Disneyland Super Site’ is expected to be operational later this week.
