COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Update

COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Update

January 7, 2021 - AFA is advocating as part of an industry coalition to have airline workers in Tier 1B. The CDC has recommended that airline workers be placed in Tier 1B. Ultimately, individual states will determine their own tiers. The coalition sent letters to all 50 state governors at the end of December.

Here’s an example of one to NY Gov. Cuomo>

Several states have placed airline workers in Tier 1C. The vaccine rollout has taken longer than expected and most are still working to vaccinate Tier 1A. 

Additionally, we want to clear up any confusion that pilots are being prioritized over Flight Attendants. Pilots had to be approved by the FAA to take the vaccine because of the conditions of their FAA-issued airman medical certification. Flight Attendants don't have the same hurdles under our certifications.
