The Petco Park COVID-19 vaccine super station will reopen Tuesday following a five-day closure due to delayed vaccine shipments.

The Petco Park site — San Diego County’s largest COVID-19 vaccination site — has been closed since Thursday as inclement weather has made shipment from the Midwest and East Coast difficult.  

As of Monday, a total of 18.9% of San Diego County’s population over the age of 16 have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 6.7% are fully inoculated.

San Diego County public health officials reported 321 new infections Monday, increasing the county’s total to 257,351 since the pandemic began. The death toll decreased by one to 3,189 due to a reporting error.

It was the 11th consecutive day with fewer than 1,000 new cases. The 321 infections are the fewest reported since early November.

Of 9,806 tests reported Monday, 3% returned positive, decreasing the 14-day average positive percentage to 4.7% from Sunday’s 4.9%.

Hospitalizations continue to decline, dropping to 639 patients — 205 of whom are in intensive care units. Hospitalizations have decreased by 59% in the past 30 days while ICU patients with COVID-19 have decreased by 53% in the same time period.

There are 55 staffed, available ICU beds in San Diego County.

One community outbreak was reported Monday, with 22 reported in the past week and 88 cases associated with those outbreaks.
