A new vaccine distribution supersite is open in Orange County, the second to open in the area following the launch of the Disneyland site on Jan. 13.

The new location, at Soka University in Aliso Viejo, is in the southern part of the county.

Molly Nichelson, a spokesperson for the Soka site, said that workers there can administer around 3,000 vaccinations per day.

“We have approximately 600,000 people in the tier 1A in Orange County,” she said, “so obviously we're trying to make sure we can get through those people as quickly as possible.”

Wait times at Disneyland have been between one and two hours, so seniors coming to Soka University are encouraged to bring a chair while they wait, and an umbrella for the rainy weather.

Orange County's vaccine supersites all require appointments, which can be made online. The County has also set up a multilingual hotline for questions about the online appointment system, at 714-834-2000.
