For the next five days, travelers passing through Bradley International Airport will have the option of getting a COVID-19 vaccine before or after catching their flight.

The Connecticut Airport Authority, which oversees Bradley, announced Friday it is partnering with the state Department of Public Health and Derby-based Griffin Health to administer no-cost Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer shots to anyone eligible, including passengers, airport employees and visitors. A temporary clinic has been set up in the facility’s baggage claim area, CAA officials said, with doses given from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

The clinic is expected to close this coming Friday, though organizers said the program could be expanded if demand for vaccines is high enough.

Shots are being made available on a walk-up basis, with no appointments necessary.

Recipients are able to choose which vaccine they receive, according to the CAA. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is available to anyone over the age of 18, and the Pfizer dose, which is administered in two rounds, is open to anyone 12 and over. Minors must be accompanied by an adult to receive a shot.

Griffin Health staff will provide instructions for Pfizer patients on where to obtain their second dose after the mandatory 21-day waiting period.

The pop-up clinic comes as other organizations, including Community Health Center, announce plans to wind up their mass vaccination sites across the state.

According to data from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, about 76% of Connecticut residents over the age of 18 have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 56% of the entire population is fully vaccinated.
