5 Weird Places People Have Been Vaccinated

Vaccination centers aren’t limited to hospitals and pharmacies. There’s also movie theaters, parking lots and plenty of abandoned buildings.

The vaccination process in the U.S. has gained momentum with every passing day. Over 249 million dosages of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered, with the government on track to immunize a significant percentage of the population by the middle of the year. There are lines everyone and most citizens are looking for something close, easy and they can get an appointment.  But sometimes it is an odd location, here are 5 weird places people have been vaccinated.

The pandemic has exposed us all to new situations, including vaccination discussions.”What vaccine did you get?” and “Where did you get injected?” are common exchanges these days.

While the majority of vaccines have been administered in hospitals and pharmacies, local governments have had to get creative with their locations, finding places that are big and easy to manage so that more people can get vaccinated.

Amusement parks were put on hold for the majority of 2020. Six Flags and Disneyland resort parking lots were transformed into vaccination centers, taking advantage of their large spaces and free flow of air. “It was super easy, extremely well-organized, and definitely the best experience I’ve had at a Six Flags,” Amanda Ach told The Huffington Post.

JCPenny, a department store chain beloved by moms and grandmas, are also open for vaccinations. At least some of them are. “The experience was somewhat surreal: Standing in line in an abandoned and empty massive store while people [received] directions and shots from men in uniforms (National Guard) and masks felt post-apocalyptic. But it was also very efficiently organized,” historian Udi Greenberg told HuffPo.

A movie theater

Movie theaters were among the hardest hit businesses in the U.S., forced to close for the majority of 2020 and part of 2021. Someone explained on Twitter that they got their shot by the concession stand. There were still leftover snacks on the counter.
