Disneyland Hosts First 'Super' Vaccination Distribution Site
Health officials will begin distributing COVID-19 vaccines this week at Disneyland, the Orange County Board of Supervisors said Monday, making the resort the first “super” vaccination site in the county. Vaccinations at the Disneyland Resort are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Those without an appropriate appointment and proper identification will be turned away. Showing up without an appointment stresses the system and depletes scarce resources.
Help Roll Out Those Vaccines

Volunteers are needed! Both medical and non-medical/general support volunteers are needed. OneOC’s Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) is currently pre-registering volunteers to assist with distributing COVID-19 vaccines.
