Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), in partnership with MedEx Pharmacy and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, said this week it is offering free, on-site COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots to the public at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on Dec. 22 and Dec. 29.
The vaccine clinic will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each of the days and will be located on the Lower/Arrivals Level of the Tom Bradley International Terminal. 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. The clinic will offer first-time shots or boosters for individuals who were previously fully vaccinated and meet guidelines.
“Vaccines are the best, first defense against COVID-19. We are pleased to be working with MedEx Pharmacy and 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,” said Justin Erbacci, LAWA CEO.
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 traveling.
