COVID-19 Vaccines Return to Tucson International
December 19, 2021
Tucson International Airport (TUS), will once again be a Point of Dispensing (POD) for the COVID-19 vaccine for travelers and community members alike. The Tucson Airport Authority (TAA), operator of TUS, has partnered with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and Premier Medical Group USA to provide all three types (Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson).
The vaccines will be administered within an office space located on the TUS baggage claim level near Bag Belt #7. Signage in the terminal will direct both travelers and locals to the POD. Anyone in need of their second dose or a booster shot will need to bring their vaccination card.
Vaccines will be available at TUS on a walk-in basis. Appointments are not necessary. The space dedicated to this program can be found on the terminal’s lower level in baggage claim, behind Bag Belt #7. Operating hours are 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Masks are required at all times within the terminal. Vaccine patients, like passengers in the terminal, have to pay to park. There are many options for COVID-19 vaccinations around Pima County and one of these might be more convenient for some in Southern Arizona.
This POD is for patients age 12 and up. Anyone needing a pediatric dose will need to visit a different location, like Abrams Public Health Center at 3950 S Country Club Road.
