In addition to the five large-scale vaccination sites set to open in Los Angeles County in the coming days, Disneyland Resort in Anaheim is the first planned “super” COVID-19 vaccination site in Orange County.

“It’s important to vaccinate as many willing people as possible for COVID-19, and we need the space to do it,” Orange County Supervisor Donald P. Wagner said in a statement.

Along with Disneyland, Orange County reports that it will open an additional five “super POD” sites. Health officials are hoping to vaccinate thousands of residents daily.

Vaccinations will be scheduled through employers, and the resort will not be available for walk-ups.

“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," acting Chairman Andrew Do, First District said.

Orange County will announce additional sites as agreements are finalized.

“I’m proud to have Disneyland Resorts and the City of Anaheim, both in my Fourth District, be the first of the Super POD sites in Orange County,” Supervisor Doug Chaffee said in a statement.  “Residents in my district have been highly impacted by COVID-19. These Super PODs are absolutely critical in stopping this deadly virus.”
