If an attendee does not meet these requirements, they are NOT considered fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to enter the event. Individuals who are unable to receive the vaccine may submit an accommodation request and will be subject to alternative testing requirements. Please contact John C. Good at [email protected] regarding accommodation requests.
