Disneyland Anaheim will become a ‘super site’ for COVID-19 vaccinations, helping tackle a situation in the Los Angeles area that’s seeing 1 in 5 people tested for COVID-19 having the virus.

Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will be the first super site for COVID-19 vaccinations in Orange County later this week when the theme park becomes part of the fight against the global pandemic, officials announced Monday.

The site will have the ability to vaccinate thousands of residents daily, according to the county.

“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,” said acting Chairman Andrew Do, First District, in a county statement announcing the site. “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 Disneyland site is expected to be operational later this week, matching a similar timeline to Los Angeles switching Dodger Stadium from a COVID-19 testing super site to a vaccination super site.

The site will still follow the state’s guidelines and only provide shots to people eligible for vaccines. Currently, the state is only permitting people who are in “Phase 1a” to receive vaccines, with the group recently expanded to include anyone who is age 75 and older, according to the county’s statement.
