[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccinations at Disneyland Resort Super POD Site by Appointment Only

Covid

***Due to high wind warnings issued by the National Weather Service for Orange County, the Disneyland Resort COVID-19 vaccine Super POD site will be closed today, Tuesday, January 19. Those with appointments scheduled for Tuesday will be notified of their rescheduled appointment date through the Othena.com user platform.

The COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed in eligibility phases. All residents are encouraged to register with the County of Orange’s vaccine and testing management app, Othena, so they can schedule appointments to be vaccinated when they are eligible. Visit https://othena.com/individuals.php and fill out the online form. To learn more about the County’s Phased Distribution plan, including which group you may be eligible for, please visit www.COVIDVaccineFacts.com.


**Vaccine Information at Disneyland Resort

Individuals without appointments, even if they are within an eligible group, are urged not to come to the Disneyland Resort Super POD vaccination site without an appointment.

Overwhelming the POD (point of distribution) system will make it even more challenging to dispense the limited supply of vaccine currently available. As vaccine becomes more plentiful, additional appointments will become available, and all eligible individuals will receive vaccine.

The County’s three existing POD sites were overwhelmed by individuals without appointments today, effectively shutting down the vaccination sites. It is critical for people to understand that appointment slots are available based on vaccine availability. Showing up without an appointment stresses the system and depletes scarce resources.

We know the public is anxious to receive the vaccine and we are working diligently to receive additional supplies. Appointments will be available as soon as the vaccine supply exists to meet that demand.

All residents are encouraged to register to be notified when the County of Orange’s vaccine and testing management app, Othena, has appointments available and is ready for their use by visiting https://othena.com/individuals.php and filling out the online form.
