Disneyland Vaccine Site Set to Close
A mass vaccination site has been in place in the staff parking lot at Disneyland for several months. The site originally was a group of tented areas where eligible residents could go and get the vaccine. It then morphed into a drive-thru site as more and more people became eligible for the vaccine. Now, it seems the Anaheim POD is closing.
Official Website Information
The following information regarding the vaccine sites was available on Anaheim’s official website:
We are providing public vaccines at the Super POD at Anaheim Convention Center and at the Anaheim POD at Disneyland Resort.
Vaccines are available by appointment only and distributed in line with state and federal guidelines.
Right now, anyone age 50 and older is eligible to get vaccinated, and starting April 15 vaccines will be open to anyone age 16 and older.
Due to a focus on vaccinating some of the hardest hit and health-access challenged neighborhoods in California, the state has prioritized the 92805 ZIP code in Anaheim. This means anyone age 16 and older living in this ZIP code is currently eligible to get vaccinated.
There are still no vaccines authorized for children younger than 16 years old, though studies are ongoing.
Those eligible must live or work in Orange County. Appointments are based on vaccine supply.
The website also states that the Anaheim Super POD (Point-of-Dispensing) located at Disneyland will close on April 30th. According to Health Care Agency director and county health officer Dr. Clayton Chau the Disneyland POD will close in order to send staff and vaccine to the locations in most need.
The site has already administered over 221,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine.
