Disneyland is a Super POD!

This week Disneyland will become the first “Super Point-of-Dispensing (POD)” for mass-vaccinations. Orange County is populated by about 3.1 million residents of which almost 200,000 have tested positive for coronavirus.

Vaccination tents will be setup in the “K Lot” (normally cast member parking) and you will be required to setup an appointment according to the state’s priority list. The state will also be ramping up vaccination efforts which Super PODs opening at Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles), Petco Park (San Diego) and Cal Expo (Sacramento). While Anaheim has set a goal of vaccinating everyone in the county by July 4, Governor Gavin Newsom has set a state goal to vaccinate 1 million people by the weekend.
