Dodger Stadium May Serve as a COVID-19 Vaccination Site

When the vaccine is widely available, it may be administered at Chavez Ravine.

Dodger Stadium is already one of the largest COVID-19 testing facilities in the United States. On a daily basis, they have the capability of administering close to 30,000 tests per day with the drive-thru service. Core Response, a non-profit run by actor Sean Penn, hopes to increase that number by 30 to 50 percent in the coming weeks.

But that’s not tall that Penn and Core Response hope to accomplish. In their ideal world, Dodger Stadium could potentially serve as a vaccination center once it becomes widely available to the public. The vaccination could be just as quick as the current process to test, if not faster.

If Dodger Stadium was made into a vaccination site, it would easily be one of the largest in the country. Drive-thru vaccination centers have already been utilized heavily to combat the flu season, so doing vaccinations there wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. Penn added that Core Response is partnering with LA County to try and get a direct supply of the vaccinations to make them widely available.

The team has not yet commented on the possibility.
