Disneyland is expected to be operational later this week, which is very similar to the timetable for Los Angeles to switch Dodger Stadium from the COVID-19 test super site to the vaccination super site.
The site will still follow the state’s guidelines and only provide vaccine injections to people who qualify for the vaccine. According to the county’s statement, the state currently only allows people in “phase 1a” to be vaccinated, and the organization has recently expanded to include anyone 75 years of age and older.
The county said that only those who are appointed and who are part of the first phase a can be vaccinated at the Anaheim resort.
Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu said in a statement in the county: “The coronavirus has caused both a public health crisis and economic damage.” “With this super site, we will Begin to overcome these two aspects. Every vaccination in Anaheim will help save lives and accelerate the reopening and recovery of our city.”
