COVID-19 vaccines will be available at Miami International Airport to airport employees, their family and friends, and travelers who live or work in Florida starting on Monday, May 10, according to airport officials.
The announcement comes as part of Miami-Dade County’s effort to make the COVID-19 vaccine more easily accessible to the County’s hospitality and tourism sector.
“We are committed to making it as easy and convenient as possible for those who live and work in Miami-Dade to get vaccinated, which is why I am so excited that we will soon be vaccinating at MIA, the daily workplace for more than 36,000 of our travel industry employees. Vaccination is our single best tool to beat this pandemic and truly get our community and our economy back to normal,” said Miami-Dade mayor Daniela Levine Cava.
Pfizer vaccines will be available for airport employees and passengers alike from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from May 10 to May 14, and June 1 through June 4, as well as on June 7, airport officials said.
MIA will have two vaccination sites during those dates and times:
Concourse D, 4th Floor Auditorium, upstairs from Door 1
Drive-through location: 75 Bus Road, Miami, FL 33102 (MIA taxi overflow lot)
For those wishing to receive their vaccine, Miami-Dade County offers a pre-registration system to expedite the vaccination process for eligible individuals who complete a one-time online registration or call 305-614-2014. Anyone who does not pre-register may have a longer wait at the vaccination site.
