Santa Clara County’s mass vaccination site at Levi’s Stadium is closing on June 24, after administering more than 350,000 doses.
It is one of four mass vaccine sites that will close within the next few weeks as COVID cases slow and more than 80 percent of eligible residents are inoculated with at least one shot.
“The move comes amidst an optimistic COVID-19 outlook in the county…as vaccine supply remains sufficient and demand for large-scale vaccination sites lessens,” the county’s public health department said in a statement.
Last week, the mass vaccination site at Berger Drive closed. On July 7, the site at Gilroy High School will close. The Mountain View site is also set to close, but a date has not been announced yet.
The only mass vaccination site poised to stay open is at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds.
The Levi’s Stadium site was the largest in the county, and one of the largest in the state with the capacity to inoculate nearly 12,000 people in a day.
“We felt it was important that we play a role in helping to protect our community against COVID-19 and we’re proud to have been able to do that for the past several months,” said 49ers President Al Guido. This was a significant operation and we are so appreciative of everyone’s shared commitment to our community.”
Those who have received only their first dose of a two-dose vaccine at the stadium by the time the site closes will be able to arrange their second appointment at any other site in the county.
