A forecast for high winds on Thursday, Feb. 25, has prompted county officials to close for the day the mass vaccination site held in the Disneyland parking lot, Orange County Fifth District Supervisor Lisa Bartlett announced in a tweet.
The site uses large tents, which in previous high winds have been damaged. It is the first vaccination site the county opened; the two large operations opened since, at Soka University and the Anaheim Convention Center, are indoors.
This is the fourth time the Disneyland location has had to close because of winds. A delay in supply caused by the recent winter storms that snarled much of the country led to the operation being closed over the weekend. The missing shipments were received Tuesday and the county’s vaccination campaign is catching up on rescheduled appointments.
The Disneyland site is expected to reopen on Friday, as long as the winds subside, Bartlett said.
It was giving people their second shots. Bartlett said any appointments delayed because of the temporary closure will be “rescheduled ASAP” and to check the Othena app or website the county is using to schedule appointments for updates.
