COVID-19 vaccinations at Disneyland Resort Super POD site by appointment only

Individuals without appointments, even if they are within an eligible group, are urged not to come to the Disneyland Resort Super POD vaccination site without an appointment.

Overwhelming the POD (point of distribution) system will make it even more challenging to dispense the limited supply of vaccine currently available. As vaccine becomes more plentiful, additional appointments will become available, and all eligible individuals will receive vaccine.

The County’s three existing POD sites were overwhelmed by individuals without appointments today, effectively shutting down the vaccination sites. It is critical for people to understand that appointment slots are available based on vaccine availability. Showing up without an appointment stresses the system and depletes scarce resources.

We know the public is anxious to receive the vaccine and we are working diligently to receive additional supplies. Appointments will be available as soon as the vaccine supply exists to meet that demand.

All residents are encouraged to register to be notified when the County of Orange’s vaccine and testing management app, Othena, has appointments available and is ready for their use by visiting https://othena.com/individuals.php and filling out the online form.

  1. In addition to making it difficult to get appointments for people over 80, the Disneyland Supersite makes people stand and wait in-line to get the Covid19 vaccination. I see Dodger Stadium manages a drive through, why can’t Orange County? The County is treating our elderly citizens terribly. I’d like someone to explain why 80 year-olds must stand in-line. I hear there are wheelchairs, but who will push them, another 80 year old?

  2. I am 66 years old and want to schedule an appointment for covid 19 vaccine shot, how can I I make appointment? I went into many online but there is no help. Please guide.

  3. I am 94 Years Old. I am staying home to avoid the Covid19. Now I know your team can help the old people to get the vaccine. So I ask you for help me how to register or making an appointment for Covid19 Vaccine shot.
    I am live alone, but I am healthy, so I did not request for In Home Supporting Services.
    Even I can not stand with you now. I stay home to Pray for your team heathy and for America stronger.

    Thank you very much

    1. Mr. Pham,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, for your prayers, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      Orange County Breeze cannot help you get a COVID-19 vaccination.

      Orange County Breeze is not in charge of appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations. Contact your health care provider or use the Othena website for Orange County, CA.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.
