SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Beginning on Jan. 31, residents living in the North County will have a closer option to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccination.

The county will open its third vaccination "super station" on Sunday at Cal State San Marcos. The vaccine clinic will be located at the school’s Sports Center and will operate from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Sunday-Thursday.

Those with appointments can park at 103 Campus View Drive, with free parking available on the floors 2 and 3.

According to the county, the site is initially expected to vaccinate 250 to 1,000 people per day, depending on the number of vaccines available, eventually building up-to 5,000+ vaccines daily.

In a news release earlier this week, County Supervisor Jim Desmond recommended that eligible residents visit to sign up for an appointment starting on Saturday.

"We know that appointments have been filling up quickly, but this Super Station will allow many more to become vaccinated," said Desmond. "Everyone should first try to coordinate with their healthcare provider, as they have their own allotment of vaccines."

Desmond said that eligible residents can also sign up for a vaccination at the Oceanside Pod, which is capable of administering 500 vaccines daily. He adds that residents should try to make an appointment around noon when the county updates the website with new appointment slots for three days out.

Currently, the county is vaccination residents who fall into Phase 1A and the first tier of Phase 1B. To search for a vaccine site location near you and more information on eligibility, visit the county's website here.
