Petco Park vaccine super station closed due to delayed vaccine shipments
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – UC San Diego Health officials said the Petco Park vaccine super station will be closed Monday because of delayed vaccine shipments.
Appointments for second doses on Feb. 19-22 were canceled and will be automatically rescheduled, the hospital said. People who had appointments should check the MyUCSDChart website for updates.
County public health officials said they were ready to administer those doses as soon as they arrive.
“We have the mechanism in place to be able to administer all the doses we get in San Diego County,” Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer, said Friday. “In the meantime, we’re asking San Diegans to be patient. As the delayed doses arrive, we will administer them to everyone who has an appointment and release new time slots.”
As many as several hundred vaccination appointments scheduled for Friday and Saturday at the county’s largest vaccine distribution site — Petco Park — were postponed, owing to delayed vaccine shipments from the Midwest and East Coast.
The county’s Health and Human Services Agency said residents who were scheduled for their second dose of the vaccine will also be rescheduled.
