Airports Around The Country Are Now Offering Flu Shots To Travelers

Just in time for dealing with holiday crowds, airports around America are now offering on-site flu shots to travelers.

If you’re like many people, the winter flu season also brings a host of other obligations like travel, busier work hours, and more weekend obligations. It can be hard to squeeze in a visit to the doctor or pharmacy for that annual flu shot.

Now, for around $20, you can use that inevitable airport downtime to get your yearly flu jab. Simply head to one of the dozens of airport clinics or kiosks across the nation and ask for an inoculation.

Flu shots are currently being offered at airports including:

  • Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, Hawaii
  • McCarran International Airport, Nevada
  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona
  • Nashville International Airport, Tennessee
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Illinois
  • John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York
  • San Francisco International Airport, California

 

If you keep the receipt for your flu shot, you may even be able to contact your health insurance company and receive reimbursement. Some clinics are also offering vaccines aimed at travelers abroad, such as shots against tetanus, yellow fever, hepatitis, and more.

Traveling can increase your chances of coming down with something nasty, so getting a flu vaccine before your next flight makes perfect sense.
