FLU*Ease stations, complete with privacy screens, are set up beyond passenger security screening in Terminals 1, 3, 4, 6, 7 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).  Stations will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays; and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays, with registered nurses administering shots to interested travelers for a $30 fee.  The program will continue throughout the flu season.

"This initiative is 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.  LAWA awarded FLU*Ease the contract to administer flu shots in the terminals.  More information about FLU*Ease is available at http://www.fluease.net/Default.aspx.  

Independent of the FLU*Ease program, Reliant Immediate Care also offers H1N1 flu shots and other travel immunizations at Reliant Medical Center at 9601 South Sepulveda Boulevard (blue building next to the LAX Airport Police station).  The H1N1 flu shot costs $24.  Reliant Medical Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provides transportation to/from airline terminals to their medical center.  More information is available at http://www.reliantmedicalcenter.com/index.html or by calling (310) 215-6020.  

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is owned and operated by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), a Los Angeles City department that owns and operates two other Southern California airports:  LA/Ontario International (ONT) and Van Nuys (VNY) general aviation.  LAX is the sixth busiest airport in the world, offering more than 565 daily flights to 81 destinations in the U.S. and over 1,000 weekly non-stop flights to 65 international destinations.
