Vaccination sites are opening up after COVID-19 vaccines arrived in California in December. Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties have announced details about several sites -- dubbed "super PODS," an acronym for Point of Distribution -- that have opened up.
Check back here as we learn of more sites opening.
This will be one of five regional mega-sites throughout Orange County. You need an appointment before receiving the vaccination.
If you live in Orange County and are 65 years or older, you can register for the vaccine here. Due to high demand and vaccine availability, appointments are released periodically. Check the registration page regularly to see if more appointments open up.
All residents are encouraged to register to be notified when vaccine appointments are available in Orange County. To register, fill out the online form.

The city of Los Angeles has converted its huge COVID-19 testing site at Dodger Stadium into a vaccination center to handle 12,000 inoculations daily.
Officials say the site will be able to vaccinate up to 12,000 people a day, officials said.
