STOCKTON (CBS13) — Thousands more people will have access to the COVID-19 vaccine in Stockton as a new mass vaccination site opens on Wednesday.

The site, located at the Stockton Arena, is opening after a bit of delay. It was supposed to open back on March 30, but an insufficient vaccine supply delayed plans.

It’s all part of a joint effort to establish large, temporary vaccination hubs in communities hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The site has the capacity to administer up to 5,400 vaccines daily and is set to be open seven days a week, but it will be contingent on supply.
