2,000 appointments open up at Sharp vaccine sites

Coronavirus

SAN DIEGO — Three Sharp-operated vaccine clinics in San Diego County recently received a new batch of doses, allowing them to add 2,000 appointment slots Tuesday.

The sites include the vaccination super stations at Grossmont Center and Chula Vista Center and a community clinic in Coronado.

Residents 65 and older and health care workers are eligible to make appointments.

A delayed shipment of the Moderna vaccine recently threw a wrench in the county’s vaccine rollout. The supply shortfall forced the county to pause operations at the county’s largest super station located at Petco Park. The site temporarily shut down Sunday and remained closed Tuesday.

San Diego Fire-Rescue says it still has appointments available for the vaccine through Thursday.

FEMA opened its first COVID-19 mass vaccination sites in California Tuesday, setting up in Los Angeles and Oakland as part of an effort by the Biden administration to get shots into arms more quickly.
