The Disneyland Resort Super POD site will close temporarily, due to a lack of vaccine supply. Severe weather across the country has delayed delivery of COVID-19 vaccine supplies across the State of California, including to Orange County.
The expected Moderna vaccine delivery on Tuesday, February 16, did not arrive. As a result, Moderna vaccine inventory is very low. State guidance encourages dispensing all vaccine supplies as quickly as possible and does not allow for maintaining a large inventory in reserve.
The Disney Super POD site, which primarily dispenses the Moderna vaccine, will close today, through Monday, February 22, pending receipt of additional supply on Monday. The opening of the Anaheim Convention Center site, scheduled for Wednesday, February 24, is potentially delayed, dependent on Moderna vaccine supply.
The Soka University site primarily dispenses the Pfizer vaccine. Soka will remain open to provide a second-dose Pfizer vaccine, dependent on vaccine supply.
Everyone who has an appointment at the affected sites will receive a notification through Othena with information regarding rescheduled appointments.
The Orange County Health Care Agency operates Super POD sites at the Disneyland Resort, Soka University, and soon the Anaheim Convention Center. Appointments for the County’s Super POD sites are scheduled through the Othena.com user platform.
Vaccination appointments are currently available to individuals classified under the “Phase 1a, all tiers”
eligible vaccine distribution group as established by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), as well as those who work as first responders in high-risk communities or who are 65 years of age or over. Proof of eligibility is required.
For questions about Othena or the registration and appointment scheduling process, please call (714) 834-2000.
