Health and government officials are searching for more facilities to house and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.
Large corporations like Walgreens and Publix will administer the vaccine in addition to the appointed hospitals. In recent news, Disneyland Resort in California will serve as a Super Point of Dispersing, providing the vaccine to thousands of people a day as well. Now, Florida government officials are mentioning Disney World as a distribution point for residents.
As reported by Orlando Sentinel, Disney World is “talking with the state and offering to help the vaccine efforts in any way it can.” In order to store the vaccine, ultracold freezers must be available onsite. Disney World could have the capacity and facilities to properly administer the vaccine.
Orlando Representative mentioned Disney World in a virtual town hall stating, “We have no ultracold freezer storage problems here in the state. There are plenty of hospitals with them. County health departments have them. Some universities have them. Disney World has one.” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made a similar remark during a news conference saying, “You literally could drop a bunch of vaccines at Disney, Orange County Schools, wherever.”
Disney World is a massive property with facilities that could potentially distribute the vaccine to thousands a day. We’ll continue to inform you of the situation and whether the vaccine will be distributed on the property in the future.
