SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- After days of being closed because of delayed shipments of vaccines, the Petco Park vaccination super station will reopen Tuesday.

The Petco Park location uses only the Moderna vaccine, whereas the other county locations use a mix of both Moderna and Pfizer.

A shipment that was supposed to arrive Monday was delayed further forcing the continued closure. Initially, the county said the site would be closed through Tuesday. Hours later, UCSD later said the site would instead reopen on Tuesday.

Even though it's recommended that a second dose of the vaccine be given within 21-28 days, the CDC says patients can get a second dose up to 42 days after their first.

At this point, the county says anyone who has had a second dose postponed will be automatically rescheduled through the UCSD My Chart website. But that may not happen until the vaccines are actually received.

In the meantime, other vaccination sites like Del Mar remain open and had appointments available as of Monday but that site is only using Pfizer vaccine, which can't be used on someone who received a first dose of Moderna.
