All Newark Liberty International Airport employees will be able to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at the new United Airlines Health Clinic within the airport itself at Terminal C.
Daisy Ramos, a United Airlines supervisor of warehouse distribution, was the first employee this morning to get vaccinated.
"I feel safe,” says Ramos. “The guys next to me are going to feel safer because now we're all going to get vaccinated."

It’s been a monthslong process to get the clinic up and running with special renovations that also needed to be done to fit the ultra-cold freezers that are now on site at the airport. 
"This is the No. 1 question I get from all of my employees; how quickly could we get it?” says Mike Erbeck, vice president of the airport for United Airlines. “When could we get it? And so, to finally have it here is just amazing."
Only United Airlines employees at the airport were using the clinic Tuesday, but all airport employees with an appointment will be able to get their shots starting Wednesday.
As many as 168 Pfizer doses are slated to be distributed from the clinic with their second doses set for May 18.
