LAX to provide free COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters at pop-up clinic
Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, will offer free, on-site COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots to the public at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) tomorrow and on December 29.
The vaccine clinic will be open 11am to 5pm each of the days and will be located on the Lower/Arrivals Level of the Tom Bradley International Terminal just beyond the US Customs and Border Protection exit.
The clinic will offer vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer for ages 12 and up, a pediatric Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for ages 18 and older. It will also provide first-time shots or boosters for individuals who were previously fully vaccinated and meet guidelines.
“Vaccines are the best, first defence against COVID-19,” stated LAWA CEO, Justin Erbacci.
“We are pleased to be working with the County Department of Public Health to offer our airport employees and visitors from around the world a convenient location to get vaccinated or boosted during the busy holiday season.”
Those interested in receiving the vaccine at LAX can park in any of the available parking structures around the Central Terminal Area (CTA) and walk or take the Airline Connector shuttle to the vaccination site.
The first 15 minutes in parking garages is free, with a cost of $7 to park for one hour. Parking Structures 3 and 4 will be the closest to the vaccination site. The LAX Economy Parking facility is also an option for parking and offers a free shuttle to the terminals.
Vaccinations will be administered by technicians with the site’s clinical partner, MedEx pharmacy, and are available without appointments. Follow-up appointments for those who require a second dose of the vaccine can be scheduled through My Turn or a local pharmacy.
The temporary vaccine clinics are part of the LAX’s Travel Safely campaign, which also includes a state-of-the-art rapid PCR COVID-19 testing lab at the airport.
The lab, which opened in late 2020, has processed more than 246,000 tests to date and continues to be popular among travelers who need or want a rapid COVID-19 test while travelling.
