Filipino passengers arriving at and departing from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) are eligible to receive a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for free.
Qualified individuals may get the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) single-dose vaccine at the SFO Medical Clinic from Mondays to Fridays, from 8AM to 5PM.
This is part of SFO’s efforts to enable passengers to travel well and safely amid the pandemic.
To become eligible, passengers must be at least 18 years of age and older and have no previous history of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine by a different manufacturer.
Passengers who have received any monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma to treat COVID-19 are also advised to wait at least 90 days before getting the vaccine to avoid interfering with previous treatments.
Those severely or immediately allergic to any ingredient of the vaccine are likewise strongly advised not to receive their shots to avoid complications.
Interested passengers are encouraged to book an appointment prior to their flight to SFO. Walk-ins may be accepted, but will be on a first come, first-served basis.
