Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California opened Wednesday as a site where members of the public can receive COVID-19 vaccinations.

Orange County officials and Disneyland Resort themselves announced earlier this week that the resort will be one of several “super” point-of-dispensing sites across the county.

Disneyland Resort will soon be able to reach a target of 7,000 vaccinations daily. After the announcement on Monday, more than 10,000 people signed up to get vaccinated.

Andrew Do, acting chairman of the county’s board of supervisors said on Monday that “there’s no better place to have our first super POD than right here at Disneyland, a travel destination for people around the world.”

“Today marks an important step in combating Covid-19 and reclaiming our lives and livelihoods.”

More POD sites are expected to be announced as soon as agreements are finalized with officials. Some of these include the Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, San Diego’s Petco Park, and Sacramento’s Cal Expo.
