San Diego County’s fourth vaccination super station is scheduled to open Tuesday at the Grossmont Center shopping mall in La Mesa. The walk-up clinic will be vaccinating people from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.

Up to 1,000 doses will be administered daily, but the daily capacity of the site operated by Sharp HealthCare is 5,000.

The Grossmont Center location, 5500 Grossmont Center Drive, Ste 212, will replace the site Sharp HealthCare had been operating on Wakarusa Street. Appointments made for that site transfer to the super station at the mall.

San Diego County’s other vaccination super stations are to open located at Petco Park, the former Sears store in Chula Vista and California State University San Marcos. Many other smaller county clinics are also vaccinating people throughout the region.

Vaccination appointments can be made at The site also includes a map of where vaccines are being distributed.

The Metropolitan Transit System and North County Transit District is offering free rides on buses and trolleys to get people to and from their vaccination appointments. Riders need only show a confirmation email — via a printout or on a smart phone — of their vaccine appointment that day.

Fletcher had said an East County super station is in the works for this week but didn’t announce a date or location.
