New Fly Well Clinic opens at John Wayne Airport
California’s John Wayne Airport has announced the opening of a Fly Well Clinic, making it one of just a few airports in the US to offer travellers onsite COVID-19 vaccinations, urgent care, telehealth consultations and vital screenings.
Located post-security in Terminal B across from Gate 10, the new clinic also will offer flu shots during the annual flu season.
Meanwhile, the recently-opened Hoag Rapid COVID-19 Testing Clinic at JWA is available to all airport visitors – passengers and non-travellers alike. Located pre-security in Terminal B on the Departure Level before the TSA Security Checkpoint.
“We are proud to partner with John Wayne Airport to offer convenient access to quality health care for the millions of people who fly to or from the airport every year,” said Marcy Brown, Hoag’s senior vice president and chief hospital operations officer.
“It’s so important that people get vaccinated against this deadly virus, and the Fly Well Clinic and the Rapid Testing Clinic are important new resources for helping us reach out to the community in a number of ways to ensure everyone receives care when and where they need it, including vaccinations,” said Hoag’s senior vice president and chief hospital operations manager, Marcy Brown.
Offering convenient access to Hoag-quality care, the Fly Well Clinic offers travellers the option of walk-in visits or advance appointment scheduling. The clinic’s onsite licensed health care provider can treat travellers’ minor illnesses and injuries, as well as cold and flu symptoms and travel sickness, as well as write prescriptions.
Travellers are also invited to visit the Fly Well Clinic for general health and wellness information. The clinic also offers a free Virtual Reality (VR) experience designed to relax and reduce the stress sometimes associated with travel along with modern aromatherapy with essential oils from CAMPO.
The partnership represents the first airport health clinic in Orange County and comes at a time of heightened health awareness among passengers and airport employees.
“As we begin to see an increase in air travel once again, we want to ensure that our guests feel safe and healthy,” noted airport director, Barry Rondinella.
“As the highest-ranked health care provider in Orange County, Hoag is uniquely positioned to address our guests’ specific health care needs, as well as the needs of the nearly 900 people who work at the airport.
“We are excited to have the Fly Well Clinic, Rapid COVID-19 Testing and COVID-19 vaccines conveniently accessible to all Airport guests, employees and tenants.”
