SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The Petco Park vaccination super station will be closed through Monday, UC San Diego Health announced Saturday.

The organization said the closure is due to delayed vaccine shipments.

“Appointments for second doses on Feb. 19–22 were temporarily canceled and will be automatically reschedule,” UC San Diego Health said.

The federal government said it would try to get delayed vaccines to their designated locations by the end of the week.

The Petco Park site delayed appointments a week ago, when a shipment of the Moderna Vaccine was delayed on February 12.

Many of the delays are due to a winter storm sweeping over much of the US. Moderna’s vaccines are produced in Massachusetts while Pfizer makes most of its vaccines in Michigan.

The CDC says people can wait up to 42 days between doses and still achieve maximum immunity.
