Sports stadiums, malls, and amusement parks are taking on a new role amid the COVID-19 pandemic — they're transforming into mass vaccination sites to help in states' efforts to distribute the life-saving coronavirus vaccines to as many people as possible.
Many sites have already opened and begun distributing thousands of doses per day. Other venues are still in the works as they prepare to take on the new challenge.
Though these new efforts are underway, Operation Warp Speed, which is the Trump administration's vaccination plan, is facing a slower-than-expected rollout. And just as states were preparing to receive more doses, the Washington Post reported the federal government doesn't have a reserve of the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines. New York City's mayor said today it would run out of doses by next week.
Among the mass vaccination sites where people have begun receiving the vaccines, which were approved in mid-December, are Disneyland resort, a New Jersey Mall, and Gillette Stadium. Here are 15 of the sites taking part in the effort.
1. DisneyLand Resort
The California-based theme park has been closed since March, but has re-opened its doors, so thousands of Southern Californians can get their COVID-19 shots. It's the first "super point-of-dispensing" site in Orange County, California, government officials said.
2. Citi Field
The New York Mets' Citi Field Stadium will transform into a "mega" vaccination site, providing between 5,000 and 7,000 shots per day, by the end of January.
