COVID-19 vaccines shall be administered at Disneyland



Well being officers will start distributing COVID-19 vaccines this week at Disneyland, the Orange County Board of Supervisors stated Monday, making the resort the primary “tremendous” vaccination website within the county.

In an announcement Monday night time, county supervisors stated Disneyland shall be one in all 5 giant “point-of-dispensing” websites that collectively would be capable of vaccinate 1000’s of residents every day. Preparations for the opposite websites are being finalized, the assertion stated.

Supervisor Doug Chaffee, whose district consists of Disneyland, referred to as such large-scale vaccination websites “completely important in stopping this lethal virus.”

Well being officers are anticipated to start vaccinating individuals at Disneyland this week, the county stated. These earliest eligible for the vaccine are individuals within the state’s highest tier of precedence, which incorporates employees in healthcare and long-term care services.

Most people who find themselves eligible for the vaccine shall be contacted via their employer to arrange an appointment, the county stated. Stroll-ups won’t be accommodated on the Disneyland website, and recipients of the vaccine should present identification and proof of eligibility earlier than being inoculated.

The vaccine’s environment friendly distribution relies upon “on everybody understanding the place they fall within the phased, tiered plan,” the county’s assertion stated.

Residents have been urged to go to the OC Well being Care Company’s web site, www.covidvaccinefacts.com, to find out after they’d grow to be eligible for the vaccine. Those that attempt to get hold of one “forward of schedule will overload the system,” the county stated, “making it much more difficult to fulfill this pressing want.”
