Disneyland recently opened a COVID-19 vaccination site, but it was closed down because of recent weather in the area, NBC Los Angeles reports.

What’s happening?

The COVID-19 vaccination site at Disneyland closed earlier this week because of “high wind warnings issued by the National Weather Service for Orange County,” according to National Weather Service for Orange County.

  • People who had appointments at the site were given rescheduled times.
  • The weather delay stopped the distribution of vaccines in California, dealing another blow to the state that has become something of an epicenter in recent weeks for the pandemic. Though the state has seen a decline recently.

More delays for seniors

The Los Angeles Times reports that it might take until June 2021 for all of California’s seniors to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, which pushes back the timetable for the rest of the state to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Any delays at vaccination sites will just create more delays for everyone.
