"Vaccines are the best, first defense against COVID-19. 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," said Justin Erbacci, CEO of Los Angeles World Airports.

People going to the airport for a vaccine can park in any of the available parking structures around the Central Terminal Area and walk or take the Airline Connector shuttle to the vaccination site. Parking Structures 3 and 4 are closest to the vaccination site and cost $7 for one hour, but the first 15 minutes is free.

The pop-up clinics are part of LAX's Travel Safely Campaign. The vaccinations will be administered by technicians with MedEx pharmacy.
