SAN DIEGO–Due to national delays in vaccine shipments, all county COVID-19 vaccination points of dispensing, or PODs, and the North County Super Station in San Marcos are currently only offering appointments for second doses.
Previously scheduled appointments for first doses at these sites are being rescheduled into next week.
In addition, the vaccination super station at Petco Park is pausing all appointments tomorrow and Saturday. The closure may be extended to Sunday and Monday depending on when more vaccine doses arrive.
Those affected by appointment cancellations are being notified via their UCSD MyChart accounts and should also check their email.
The Sharp vaccination super station sites at Chula Vista Center and Grossmont Center are still offering first and second dose appointments with Pfizer vaccine.
The county’s vaccination super station at the Del Mar Fairgrounds remains open and is honoring previously scheduled appointments.
The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention has advised that people can wait up to 42 days between doses and still achieve maximum immunity. Therefore, people who have received their first dose and are experiencing minor delays in second dose appointments need not be concerned.
