County officials are creating massive COVID-19 vaccination sites and are looking for volunteers to help with the distribution effort.
The sites – called super distribution points or PODs – will be set up throughout the area and are expected to vaccinate thousands of residents each day. Disneyland was the first place announced on Monday, and four more are expected and will have to be serviced seven days a week, officials said.
