CSUSM to Host County-run COVID-19 Vaccination Site

Cal State San Marcos is the site of a new COVID-19 vaccination “super station” being operated by San Diego County that will open on Sunday, Jan. 31.  

Individuals can be vaccinated at the site, by appointment only, Sundays through Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at The Sports Center and Clarke Field House on campus. Free parking is available in Parking Structure 1 on levels 2 and 3; disabled parking is in Lot L next to The Sports Center.  

The vaccination site is a collaboration between the county and CSUSM, with staff support from Palomar Health, UC San Diego Health and Tri-City Medical Center. It plans to offer 1,000 doses daily upon opening, with the potential to vaccinate 5,000 people per day when more vaccine becomes available.  

Appointments are required and can be scheduled at www.vaccinationsuperstationsd.com. Appointments for this site will become available on Saturday afternoon.  

Note that the vaccination site is available only to individuals who are in the eligible phases as listed here.  

Anyone interested in the COVID-19 vaccine should first contact their medical provider. Only if someone is not able to receive the vaccine from their medical provider should they make an appointment at the county site.  

As a result of the new vaccination site, the hours of the COVID-19 testing site at CSUSM are changing. Starting on Friday, Jan. 29, the testing site in the Viasat Engineering Pavilion will be open Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Tests will continue to be available to anyone, with no appointment necessary, and any individual who’s in line by 4 p.m. can receive a test.  

The previous hours of the testing site, which is operated by the county, were 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week.
