Increased demand in COVID-19 vaccines anticipated after State announced their “Vax for the Win” Program.
(Santa Ana, CA) — The County of Orange anticipates an increased demand for first dose COVID-19 vaccinations after Governor Newsom’s announcement on May 27, 2021 that the State of California has launched “Vax for the Win,” a COVID-19 Vaccine Incentive Program.
The County Super Point-of-Dispensing (POD) sites have been dispensing the second dose of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. To meet the anticipated increase in demand for first dose COVID-19 vaccinations, the County Super PODs will also offer the first dose of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines through the Anaheim Convention Center, OC Fair & Event Center, Santa Ana College, and Soka University from Tuesday, June 1 through Saturday, June 5, 2021. For information about which vaccines are available at each location, please visit https://occovid19.ochealthinfo.com/covid-19-vaccine-resources starting Tuesday.
As all County Super PODs are scheduled to close operations on Sunday, June 6th, individuals who receive a first dose at a County Super POD next week will be connected on-site with information about how to schedule their second dose. That information includes:
- The Othena platform will automatically select your second dose date; you will need to log-in to select your preferred location at one of the County’s mobile events or call the OC COVID-19 Hotline at (714) 834-2000 for assistance.
- Alternatively, you may receive your second dose at a location like a pharmacy or health care provider and can access a list here.
In order to ensure that each location is staffed appropriately, individuals are encouraged to visit www.Othena.com or call the OC COVID-19 Hotline at (714) 834-2000 to make an appointment; however, walk-ins will also be accommodated. The Hotline can also assist with arranging transportation to and from each Super POD, if needed.
