FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, March 31st, 2021
SANTA ANA – Supervisor Katrina Foley (District Two) was joined by Chairman Andrew Do (District One), Supervisor Doug Chaffee (District Four), and representatives from the Orange County Fair Board of Directors and Orange County Health Agency today, to announce the opening of the County’s third Super Pod vaccination site at the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds.
“As we open more business sectors in the Orange Tier, our new same-day appointment system at our OC Fair and Event Center location, will help our community get back to work safely and conveniently,” said Supervisor Foley. “The site’s dual-function as a joint vaccine and COVID testing location, helps ensure our goals of health equity and serving the ongoing needs of our communities.”
During the press conference, Foley also announced ongoing efforts to expand hours for the pod location, to better serve those who might not be able to get vaccinated during normal business hours. She concluded with the announcement that she would work with the OC Fair Board to support the vaccination of the fair’s 1500 employees, in advance of the July 16th opening.
“Finally, I want to remind our community members on the continued importance of wearing masks and practicing social distancing, even as our vaccination rollout continues.” reminded Supervisor Foley. “We are so close to the light at the end of the tunnel, including being able to return to the OC Fair. We just have to stay the course.”
