COVID Vaccine Information for Aviation Workers

COVID Vaccine Information for Aviation Workers

Updated April 8, 2021

Aviation is critical for vaccine distribution, and the people on the frontlines of aviation need priority vaccination. AFA has called on the federal government to set up vaccination clinics at airports to make it easy for aviation workers to access both their first and second doses. This is urgent and we are working with the new administration to make this a priority to protect workers and effectively eradicate the virus.
