JFK Opens COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), in partnership with the City of New York, JetBlue Airways and Northwell Direct, this week opened a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) for airport workers.

The clinic in JFK Terminal 5 will provide greater flexibility for employees who work both morning and evening shifts. Northwell Direct will administer the two-dose Pfizer vaccine outside JetBlue’s baggage services office Monday through Friday until supplies last. Anyone with an airport badge and valid government-issued ID is eligible to receive the vaccine.

“We’re taking the steps today to make it easier for all in our airport community to have access to the vaccine,” said Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole. “While we continue to take all necessary precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 through enhanced cleaning and using face coverings, vaccinations are also key to our recovery throughout the region and we are thankful that the City of New York was able to allocate a number of vaccines to our airport community.”
