In an interesting turn Disneyland is going to be used as “the first super site for COVID-19 vaccinations in Orange County” according to NBC Los Angeles. The site will be expected to become operational later this week.
First District acting Chairman, Andrew Do said the following:
“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.”
The vaccines will be available for those that fall under those categorized as “Phase 1a” and have appointments.
Third District Supervisor, Donald P. Wagner made this statement:
“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.”
It’s an interesting twist in the Disney- COVID-19 saga. It’s in the company’s best interest to get back to “normal” as soon as possible, so it makes complete sense why they would open the area up for this. That and the positive PR will give them a boost as well.
