Appointments become available on Sunday for the County of San Diego’s sixth mega vaccination site, the North Central Vaccination Super Station at UCSD RIMAC.
“Investments we are making in vaccination sites guarantee we have a robust network of easily accessible places for people to get vaccinated,” said Chair Nathan Fletcher, San Diego County Board of Supervisors. “This sixth vaccination super station is another step in our ongoing commitment to have an equitable countywide vaccination strategy as more doses of the vaccine are made available for San Diegans.”
The no-cost walk-in clinic is located in the nearly 200,000 square foot Recreation, IntraMural and Athletic Complex (RIMAC) on the university’s campus. The appointment-only site has the capacity to expand to up to 5,000 vaccinations a day.
“UC San Diego Health is proud to help increase access to vaccination for all San Diegans. Our goal is to get vaccine in as many arms as possible based on available supply. We highly encourage you to sign up if you are eligible,” said Patty Maysent, CEO of UC San Diego Health.
The first two days of public openings at the North Central Vaccination Super Station at UCSD RIMAC are limited to first-time appointments for the Pfizer vaccine. Those limits are in place as the region waits for weather-delayed vaccination shipments to arrive to catch up with rescheduled second doses of primarily Moderna vaccine.
The North Central location is open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the address is 9730 Hopkins Dr., 92093. Parking is free
The five other mega sites are the South County – Sharp Chula Vista Mall Super Station, North Coastal – Scripps Del Mar Fairgrounds Park Super Station, East County – Sharp Grossmont Center Mall Super Station, Central – UC San Diego Petco Park Super Station, and North County – Cal State University San Marcos Sports Center Super Station.
