New COVID-19 Vaccination Site Confirmed for Santa Ana

February 12, 2021 Updated: February 15, 2021

Orange County’s latest COVID-19 vaccine site is landing at Santa Ana College, the city said on Feb. 11.

It’s not yet known whether the site will become the county’s third super point of distribution. The county currently has two super sites; one at Disneyland in Anaheim and another at Soka University in Aliso Viejo.

Santa Ana residents looking to be vaccinated can sign up on Othena, the county’s vaccination platform, to book an appointment when they become available.

Santa Ana College had a COVID-19 testing site that will be temporarily closed from Feb. 12 to 16 for relocation, in order to make space for the upcoming vaccination site.

The exact date of the new site opening is unknown.

The site comes as Hispanics continue to be the population most affected by COVID-19 in Orange County. They make up 44.3 percent of infections, despite accounting for 35 percent of the county’s population. The diaspora received 11 percent of overall vaccinations so far.

According to vaccine information updated by the Orange County Health Care Agency on Feb. 11, which includes data from last Dec. 15 to Feb. 8, there have been 376,735 total valid doses administered in Orange County, with 306,016 people receiving at least their first dose.

An additional 70,719 people have been fully inoculated with both their first and second doses.

In terms of people who have received at least one dose, 59 percent, or 179,577, are women. Men made up 41 percent, or 126,047, of the vaccinations.
