Orange County official announced today that Disneyland Resort will serve as a distribution site for the COVID-19 vaccine, according to NBC Los Angeles.

  • Disneyland Resort will serve as the “Super first Point-of-Dispensing” site for COVID-19 vaccines for residents.
  • According to Orange County, the site will have the ability to vaccinate thousands of residents on a daily basis. The goal is to have everyone vaccinated in Orange County by July 4.
  • Disneyland Resort is expected to begin operations as a vaccination site later this week, which lines up with the timeline of Los Angeles converting Dodger Stadium from a COVID-19 testing super site to a vaccination super site.
  • The vaccination location at the Disneyland Resort will be in the Toy Story Lot, near to Anaheim Gardenwalk on Katella Ave. Only those identified under Phase 1a who have an appointment will receive a vaccination at the County’s new Super POD locations, like that at the Disneyland Resort. Individuals with appointments must provide identification and documentation of vaccine eligibility at the site. Walk-ups without an appointment cannot be accommodated. Given the limited initial supply of the COVID-19 vaccine, distribution will be limited at first and increased over time.

What they’re saying:

  • Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu: “Coronavirus has brought both a public health crisis and economic devastation. With this super site, we will begin to overcome both. Every vaccination done in Anaheim will help to save lives and speed the reopening and recovery of our city.”
  • Acting Chairman Andrew Do, First District: “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. 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.”
  • Supervisor Donald P. Wagner, Third District: “It's important to vaccinate as many willing people as possible for COVID-19, and we need the space to do it. I thank Disneyland Resort and the City of Anaheim for stepping up in the shared effort to give OC residents protection against the virus.”
