A COVID-19 vaccination site opened in Otay Mesa Tuesday, while the Petco Park vaccine super station reopened following a five-day closure.

The Petco Park site — San Diego County’s largest COVID-19 vaccination location — had been closed since Thursday, with winter weather that affected much of the country delayed shipments of vaccine from the Midwest and East Coast. Petco Park uses only the Moderna vaccine, while other sites use Pfizer or both.

The new Otay Mesa site will administer doses from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will be open Sunday through Thursday at the Border View Family YMCA, 3601 Arey Drive. The clinic will start with a capacity to administer up to 500 doses daily, but can expand to give 1,000 shots each day.

On Sunday, a site will open in Lemon Grove, operating from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sundays and Mondays. The site will be at the Lemon Grove Community Center, 3146 School Lane. When fully operational, the Lemon Grove clinic will be able to administer 500 doses daily.
