A brand new attraction is coming to Disneyland, and no, it doesn’t involve cartoon characters and is not quite as fun as Splash Mountain, but it’s essential for life in Anaheim to return to normal. Soon, a “super” COVID-19 vaccination site will open at Disneyland Resort.
Starting later this week, the park will serve as one of several “super POD”– Point-of-Dispensing — sites where thousands of people per day will be able to get their vaccinations.
According to a statement from Andrew Do, acting chairman of the county’s Board of Supervisors, “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.”
Similar sites will open soon in other parts of California, including Dodger Stadium in LA and San Diego’s Petco Park. Orange County, where Disneyland is located, is currently vaccinating healthcare personnel, long-term facility residents, and people aged 65 and older. If you meet the criteria, you can schedule an appointment to be vaccinated at a super POD site.
“It’s important to vaccinate as many willing people as possible for Covid-19, and we need the space to do it,” said County Supervisor Donald P. Wagner. “I thank Disneyland Resort and the City of Anaheim for stepping up in the shared effort to give OC residents protection against the virus.”
