SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Monday's high winds and rain forced the downtown San Diego vaccination super station to close for the day and into Tuesday morning.

Officials said they would reassess whether to reopen the vaccination site near Petco Park on Tuesday morning, depending on weather conditions.

The county says appointments scheduled for Monday are being rescheduled for Thursday and those individuals should return only at their newly scheduled time through the MyChart system. Appointments made for the Petco Park site are not transferable to other county vaccination sites.

All other county-run vaccination sites remained open on Monday despite the inclement weather around the county.

Currently, the county's vaccination sites are only serving residents with appointments that are healthcare workers in Phase 1A and those 65 and older in the first tier of Phase 1B. Appointments can be made online here.

The county says residents should contact their doctor or healthcare provider first for a vaccine before making an appointment at a county site if none are available. Walk-ups and drive-ups are not allowed without appointments.

Anyone who is sick with COVID-19 should not make an appointment.
