Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX) this week opened a free COVID-19 vaccination program for airport employees as well as for workers at Phoenix Deer Valley (DVT) and Phoenix Goodyear (GYR) airports.
The vaccination event is being held at the 44th Street PHX Sky Train Station through April 29, providing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine free of charge to all workers, as well as any airport contractor or volunteer who holds a Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport badge or credential is eligible. This includes employees of airlines, shops and restaurants, ground transportation providers, other service providers, construction companies and more, as well as their families.
The vaccine dispensing event is a collaborative effort between the city of Phoenix, Maricopa County, Curative and employers at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear airports.
“Phoenix Sky Harbor is one of our city’s largest revenue generators that has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Phoenix City Councilmember Ann O’Brien. “Making the COVID-19 vaccine available to all airport workers, including the staff of Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, the busiest general aviation airport in the nation, is a big step toward normalcy.”
