(Bloomberg) -- Orange County, California, opened a mass-vaccination site at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim on Wednesday, where it expects to inoculate more than 7,000 people a day.

Walt Disney Co. is providing staffing assistance as well as space on its Toy Story parking lot. Some 10,000 people signed up in the first two hours Tuesday, according to Andrew Do, chairman of the county board of supervisors. He asked the county’s 3.2 million residents to be patient. “The server can only handle so many calls and then it crashes,” he said.

Going big: US dispensing shots at stadiums and fairgrounds

  Going big: US dispensing shots at stadiums and fairgrounds The U.S. is entering the second month of the biggest vaccination drive in history with a major expansion of the campaign, opening football stadiums, major league ballparks, fairgrounds and convention centers to inoculate a larger and more diverse pool of people. After a frustratingly slow rollout involving primarily health care workers and nursing home residents, states are moving on to the next phase before the first one is complete, making COVID-19 shots available to such groups as senior citizens, teachers, bus drivers, police officers and firefighters.

Disneyland Resort will serve as a mass vaccination site for residents in Orange County, California, beginning this week, authorities said. California is transforming fairgrounds and Disneyland ' s Toy Story parking lot into mass vaccination sites as virus surge sets a deadly new record.

Orange County plans to open five such “Super Pod,” or point-of-dispensing, sites. The Disney lot opening comes as California struggles to ramp up Covid-19 vaccinations. The state has administered roughly a third of the vaccines received so far, even as it plans to expand eligibility.

“The state rollout has been a bit disappointing,” said Don Wagner, a county supervisor, at a news conference Wednesday. “California, the technology capital of the nation -- indeed the technology capital of the world -- is behind other states to vaccinate people in a timely manner.”

COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered but are sitting on pharmacy shelves. Longer delays could prolong the pandemic

  COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered but are sitting on pharmacy shelves. Longer delays could prolong the pandemic If the pace of COVID-19 vaccination doesn't pick up soon, the pandemic will continue to dominate life in America longer than officials have predicted.Federal officials appear to have overestimated the speed at which vaccines could be given out, making delivery a disappointment in an otherwise successful vaccine development effort.

People looking to get vaccinated at the Disney site will need a reservation, and are encouraged to sign up through a website or app. Only people in the first tier of eligible residents, which now includes senior citizens, are allowed to receive the shot. They’ll park and then walk into a tent for their inoculation.

While California officials said Wednesday they will expand vaccines to anyone 65 and older, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said it may be February before regular residents in that age group can get inoculations. They’re going to sign up more doctors and other providers next week so they can prepare for the vaccination of seniors.

The theme park is set to become a mass COVID vaccine site. On Monday, Orange County announced it would establish the first of five Super Point-of-Dispensing (POD) vaccination sites at Disneyland. It is hoped thousands of residents will be vaccinated each day at the Super PODs, according to a news release.

“I know how frustrating it must seem to folks in L.A. county -- we’re not done with our health-care workers,” she said in a news conference Wednesday. “We don’t have enough vaccines. We have hundreds of thousands we need to get through. We’ve asked the state to get us more vaccines.”

There are 75 community sites for health-care workers in Los Angeles County, including Dodger Stadium, which opens at the end of the week and will do thousands a day, just for health-care workers. There are 700,000 to 800,000 people who qualify under the first phase.
