Vaccinations at the O.C. Fair? With county infections rising, officials say it's worth a shot

A small clinic will give out free shots in the Costa Mesa building from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day the fair is open, except Saturdays.

“We’ve been with people since the very beginning on the forefront of the fight against COVID-19,” Richards said. “We’re thrilled we can continue that effort with the vaccine clinic.”Staffed by a handful of healthcare workers, the small set-up will be able to dispense up to 100 doses of either the Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccine each day, with the ability to ramp up if demand is higher.

“The partnership with the O.C. Fair & Event Center allows us an opportunity to make sure that people are aware that vaccine clinics are available at various locations throughout the county seven days a week,” Anza Vang, the healthcare agency’s chief of strategy and development, said by email Thursday. “People are gathering and we want to be where they are to provide them with information about how to protect themselves.”

In addition to opening the onsite clinic, Richards said fair officials offered 750 free tickets to the healthcare agency to distribute as incentives to attract residents to clinics outside the fairgrounds. Those tickets are now being offered on certain days at a clinic at Huntington Beach’s Golden West College, one of 30 clinics operating weekly throughout Orange County. headtopics.com

“Golden West College was selected on several factors, including its location among the areas with higher testing positivity percentage, lower vaccination rates and case rates above other cities,” Vang said. Read more: Los Angeles Times »
