SAN DIEGO–The federal government Friday announced it is ramping up efforts to get all delayed doses of COVID-19 vaccine to their destined locations by the end of next week.
County health officials say the region is prepared to administer however many doses arrive locally.
“We have the mechanism in place to be able to administer all the doses we get in San Diego County,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “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.”
Currently, all County COVID-19 vaccination points of dispensing, or PODs, and the North County Super Station in San Marcos are only offering appointments for second doses.
Appointments for the first doses at these sites are being rescheduled for next week. Residents should be notified of their new appointment date and time by the MyTurn appointment system or by email.
In addition, the vaccination super station at Petco Park is pausing all appointments through Saturday. The site could remain closed Sunday and Monday, depending on when more vaccine doses arrive.
