Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) held a two-day mass COVID-19 vaccination event specifically tailored for ease of access for airport and airline workers.

The March 17-18 event was by appointment only, and was a partnership between CLT, Atrium Health, the State of North Carolina, the City of Charlotte, and American Airlines. The event was to provide more than 4,600 first vaccinations for airline employees and other transportation workers.

“Our airport is a gateway to the world – not just for Charlotte, but for people from all across North America,” said Dr. Scott Rissmiller, executive vice president and chief physician executive for Atrium Health. “The men and women working there continue to work extra hard to keep us safe and healthy. They exemplify the essential, front line worker. It is exciting to know that we can upgrade them to first class, so to speak, with the protection the COVID-19 vaccine offers.”
