SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – San Diego County’s vaccination super station is closed for the second straight day -- one day after inclement weather forced the vaccine clinic to shut down.

On Monday, high winds and heavy rain led to the closure of the downtown San Diego vaccination site, located at Petco Park’s Tailgate Lot.

Despite improving weather conditions on Tuesday, county officials decided to keep the super station closed for another day and reopen on Wednesday, Jan. 27.

County health officials said: “The Vaccination Super Station at Petco Park will remain closed all day Tuesday, Jan. 26 for repairs. Tuesday appointments will be moved to Saturday, Jan. 30. Patients will be notified via MyChart.”

Appointments that were scheduled for Monday were 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.

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.
