Latest COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Flight Attendants

Latest COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Flight Attendants

March 22, 2021 — We have called on state and local authorities to set up mass vaccination centers at airports in order to reach frontline aviation workers who struggle to access the vaccine at normal locations. Airport vaccination sites have been set up at DEN, HNL, and ORD. This is a great start—let's keep expanding at airports across the country!

AFA MECs and Local Councils are working hard to get access for Flight Attendants and provide the most up to date information at your base. Make sure you're signed up for your local communications. Just this weekend, United AFA Local Council 11 in San Francisco was able to get 200 SFO-based Flight Attendants the first dose of the vaccine thanks to our partnership with the San Mateo County Central Labor Council and the San Francisco Labor Council! 

Officials in at least 20 states have committed in recent days to opening coronavirus vaccine appointments to all adults in March or April, part of a fast-moving expansion as states race to meet President Biden’s goal of universal eligibility by May 1.

In Ohio, all adults will be allowed to seek shots starting March 29. In Connecticut, April 5. In Alaska and Mississippi, all adults are already able to book appointments.

And on Thursday and Friday, officials in Illinois, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Maryland, Missouri, Maine and Vermont said that all adults would be allowed in April to sign up for a shot, while the governors of Utah and North Dakota set universal eligibility to begin this month.

AFA has provided a letter of prioritization for Flight Attendants and more information about vaccine access here.
