The Orange County Health Care Agency plans to open a new Super Point of Dispensing (POD) site at the Anaheim Convention Center on February 24, 2021. The third POD site will be increasing vaccine dispensing capacity as more people are due to receive a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Effective February 24, 2021, everyone who received the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at the Disneyland Super POD site will receive the second dose at the Anaheim Convention Center Super POD site. After February 24, Disneyland will only dispense Pfizer, both first and second doses.
The Anaheim Convention Center site will only dispense Moderna, first and second doses. The second dose appointment will remain at the same date and time; only the location will change. Othena will send a notification to everyone whose appointment location is affected by this change. Appointments are available through Othena.com based on vaccine availability. 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. Vaccinations are by appointment only. The County Super PODs and mobile clinics are not the only options to receive a vaccination. Other healthcare providers approved to dispense the vaccine, including hospitals, pharmacies, and health clinics, play an essential role in vaccinating Orange County’s population.
Vaccinations are by appointment only. Those scheduled for an appointment are encouraged to arrive no more than 30 minutes before their appointment time and dress appropriately for the weather. Individuals without an appointment will be turned away.
Residents can also visit COVIDVaccineFacts.com for the latest information on who is currently eligible to receive the vaccination and learn about the vaccines’ safety and efficacy.
