Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in partnership with FLU*Ease, Inc., is again offering flu shots to travelers as a public safety measure during this flu season.
FLU*Ease stations, complete with privacy screens, are set up beyond federal passenger security screening in Terminals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7. Stations are open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., with registered nurses administering shots to interested travelers for a $35 fee. The program will continue through Dec. 20, 2010.
“This initiative is once again a convenient resource for travelers and part of LAX’s contribution to helping contain the spread of flu and protect the public’s safety during this flu season,” said Debbie Bowers, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) deputy executive director for commercial development. “Travelers have the convenience of getting a flu shot without having to go to a health center or a doctor’s office.”
FLU*Ease, Inc., a physician-supervised medical organization based in Chicago, Illinois, provides immunization services to companies and organizations nationwide. More information about FLU*Ease is available at http://www.fluease.net.
Independent of the FLU*Ease program, Reliant Immediate Care also offers flu shots and other travel immunizations at Reliant Medical Center at 9601 South Sepulveda Boulevard (blue building next to the LAX Airport Police station). Reliant’s flu shots cost $25.
Reliant Medical Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provides transportation to/from airline terminals to its medical center. More information is available at http://www.reliantmedicalcenter.com/index.html or by calling (310) 215-6020.
