Close up color image depicting a blue sign with the words 'covid vaccination site' at a covid-19 vaccination centre.As travel slowly ramps back up after COVID-19, airports are donating their under-used parking lots and garages as vaccination sites for their communities:

  • The red lot at Portland International Airport is offering drive-through vaccine services administered by the Oregon Health & Science University. Volunteers from the Red Cross are helping direct traffic.
  • George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport in Houston will host vaccine clinics in parking lots soon. These clinics are being run by the Houston Health Department. Details here (subscription required).
  • San Francisco International Airport has used a parking garage for a vaccine clinic in cooperation with San Mateo County.
  • Lee County, Fla., is offering vaccinations at events in an old terminal lot across the street from Southwest Florida International Airport.

Is your operation hosting vaccine clinics in a lot or garage? Please let us know.
