San Diego's Petco Park vaccination super station will once again close starting Saturday due to a nationwide shortage of Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, a county spokesperson confirmed to NBC 7.

The County spokesperson said the closure would last through Tuesday.

It's the second time supply disruptions have forced a pause at one of San Diego's biggest vaccination sites. NBC 7's Dave Summers has more.

Second-dose appointments will be rescheduled automatically, the spokesperson said. Those impacted by the delays are advised to check their MyUCSDChart account or look for an email with details about their new appointment date.

Petco Park only administers Moderna vaccines. No information on how this nationwide shortage will affect other local vaccine sites was released.

This is also the second weekend Petco Park’s vaccine site faces a closure. Extreme winter weather in parts of the U.S. delayed delivery of doses last week.

This also comes days after the county announced employees in schools, education and childcare; non-medical emergency responders and workers in the food and agriculture sectors will be eligible for vaccinations beginning on Saturday.
