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,” Heather Buschman, spokeswoman for UC San Diego Health, said of the vehicles moving through the site.
Staffers under a white medical tent injected health care 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 fairgrounds in Sacramento.
Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday there will be “many more sites” to come in the effort to speed up COVID-19 vaccinations.
“This is encouraging and part of this flywheel, and I know it can’t go fast enough — that everyone should anticipate and expect as it relates to vaccination,” he said at press conference.
Newsom also said the state is taking an “all-hands-on-deck approach” to vaccinations, including having them administered by pharmacists, dentists, paramedics and emergency medical technicians.
“We continue to do more to support the needs of these vaccines delivered not only to our partners up and down the state of California … but also administered into people’s arms,” he said.
