Disneyland in California will become Orange County’s first mass vaccination site, officials have announced.

The theme park, which has been closed since the start of the pandemic - a period of nearly 10 months - will host a large Point-Of-Dispensing (POD) site for vaccine distribution.

Disneyland will be one of five such sites in the county, with each location capable of vaccinating thousands of people each day.

"Disneyland Resort is proud to help support Orange County and the City of Anaheim with the use of our property, and we are grateful for all of their efforts to combat COVID-19,” said Dr. Pamela Hymel, chief medical officer, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products.

“After a year in which so many in our community have faced unprecedented hardship and uncertainty, there is now reason for optimism with the administration of a vaccine.”
