California has begun rolling out “super” COVID-19 vaccination sites at baseball stadiums, fairgrounds and a Disneyland Resort as the state grapples with virus surges.
Cars on Monday drove through Petco Park in San Diego, where they’re aiming to administer 5,000 shots each day at the “vaccination superstation.”
“It’s kind of like a Disneyland ride,” said Heather Buschman, spokeswoman for UC San Diego Health, of the vehicles moving through the site.
Staffers under a white medical tent injected healthcare workers as they drove through, then sent them to wait nearby for 15 minutes to be observed for any adverse reactions.
Orange County officials also announced Monday that a Disneyland Resort parking lot in Anaheim will be converted into its first mass vaccination site.
And by the end of the week, Los Angeles officials plan to transform Dodger Stadium into a site that will administer 12,000 shots daily.
Other sites have been designated for Padres Stadium in San Diego and the CalExpo
