Health officials will begin distributing COVID-19 vaccines this week at Disneyland, the Orange County Board of Supervisors said Monday, making the resort the first “super” vaccination site in the county.
In a Monday night statement, county supervisors said Disneyland will be one of five large “distribution point” sites that will collectively be able to vaccinate thousands of residents every day. The statement said that arrangements for the other sites are being finalized.
Supervisor Doug Chaffee, whose county includes Disneyland, described these large-scale vaccination sites as “extremely critical in stopping this deadly virus.”
The county said health officials are expected to start vaccinating people at Disneyland this week. The closest eligible people to receive the vaccine are the people at the highest priority level in the state, which includes health care workers and long-term care facilities.
The county said most people who qualify for the vaccine will be contacted by their employer to make an appointment. Follow-up processes will not take place at the Disneyland site, and vaccine recipients must show identification and proof of eligibility before being vaccinated.
The provincial statement said that the effective distribution of the vaccine depends on “everyone’s understanding of where they are in the phased and graduated plan.”
Residents are urged to visit the OC Health Care Agency website, www.covidvaccinefacts.comTo determine when they are eligible for the vaccine. The county said those trying to get one “ahead of schedule will overwhelm the system”, making it even more difficult to meet this urgent need.
