The Super POD at Anaheim Convention Center is permanently closed as of June 6. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who made it possible to vaccinated thousands of people! And thank you to all who got their shots at the convention center site.
It's never been easier to get vaccinated in Anaheim.
And now you can even get rewarded for it!
California, healthcare providers and many local businesses are offering rewards and incentives for those who get vaccinated.
So if you needed one more reason, here's your sign to go get vaccinated today if you haven't already!
More freedom and protection for you and your family
Once fully vaccinated, you have greater protection against contracting a serious case of COVID-19, hospitalization and death.
Being "fully vaccinated" means that you are two weeks after your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after your only dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
According to guidelines released by the federal Centers for Disease Control, fully vaccinated people can gather indoors with other vaccinated people, without masks or social distancing. And they can also gather with low-risk unvaccinated people.
The state of California also has put out guidelines for fully vaccinated people. Read them here.
In addition, you'll have to wear masks less often, especially when you're outdoors or in small groups.

Vaccines are safe and they work
Millions of vaccines have been administered in California, including into the arms of about half of Orange County's population.
There have been little to no major adverse reactions, and we're already seeing the benefits of our journey toward herd immunity.
As we've increased vaccinations, COVID-19 cases have decreased to levels not seen since the first days of the pandemic. We're seeing first-hand how vaccines prevent the spread of the virus and keep those who do get COVID out of the hospital.
There's a lot of talk and even misinformation surrounding COVID-19 vaccines. But rest assured: Vaccines are safe.
The vaccine does not contain the virus. It will not give you COVID-19.
The vaccine contains the biological blueprint to create a harmless protein associated with coronavirus, which then helps your body learn how to fight the virus.
The vaccines have been carefully evaluated in clinical trials.
It's essential that everyone get vaccinated when they are able so we can get back to normal. Vaccines are our ticket out of this crisis for good.

Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record
All vaccinated individuals are encouraged to keep their paper CDC immunization card in a safe and secure place for their records.
In addition, California has launched an online digital vaccine record tool where vaccinated people can submit their name, phone number and birthday and receive a QR code that shows their vaccination record.
Go to Myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov to get your free vaccine record.
