The Honor Flight Network will require that all participants on 2021 Honor Flight trips be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Currently, all trips are on hold until at least August 15.
Honor Flight is taking these precautions, among other COVID-19 safety measures, to ensure the health and safety of all those who travel with us. Some Honor Flight veterans are in the CDC’s high-risk categories and reside in assisted living facilities with other vulnerable populations. At this time, requiring that all participants be fully vaccinated is the best step we can take to keep our veterans safe while experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Veterans and families with questions about the COVID-19 vaccines are encouraged to participate in a free, live webinar hosted by the Honor Flight Network on May 6. The webinar will include a presentation by Honor Flight CEO Meredith Rosenbeck and Dr. Jane Kim, Chief Consultant for Preventive Medicine at the VA’s National Center for Health Promotion and Prevention. Veterans and family members will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
