The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, will be re-opening to guests but not for rides and attractions. The theme park has been designated to become the first "super" COVID-19 vaccination site in Orange County, which has become one of the worst-hit areas in the US by the pandemic.
"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," said acting Chairman Andrew Do, First District of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
"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."
"Super POD" sites, will have the capacity to vaccinate thousands of residents each day. According to the Board of Supervisors, the Super PODs will increase efficiency and provide multiple vaccine distribution points throughout Orange County. The County said they will announce additional Super POD sites as agreements are finalized.
"It's important to vaccinate as many willing people as possible for COVID-19, and we need the space to do it," said Supervisor Donald P. Wagner, Third District. "I thank Disneyland Resort and the City of Anaheim for stepping up in the shared effort to give OC residents protection against the virus."
The first Super POD at the Disneyland Resort will be operational later this week. Most of those eligible to be vaccinated in Phase 1a will be contacted through their employer to schedule an appointment via a third-party app developed in cooperation with the County of Orange. The Disneyland site will not accommodate walkups.
