APHA recognizes the need to provide APHA 2021 attendees with the safest experience possible.
Based on the latest CDC recommendations and in line with guidelines from local authorities in Denver:
- All in-person Annual Meeting attendees and contractors must be fully vaccinated to participate. Full vaccination is defined as two shots of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccine and one shot of the Johnson & Johnson product (or a comparably approved vaccine if you are an international attendee).
- Facial mask wearing is required for all indoor activities at the Annual Meeting.
We also encourage all attendees to get their annual flu vaccine before attending.
It can take up to six weeks to complete the full schedule for COVID vaccines that require two doses to achieve full efficacy and 14 days for the influenza vaccine. So please plan accordingly. For those traveling from overseas, please be aware of restrictions placed on your country of origin, as travelers from some countries are required to quarantine for two weeks.
We will provide appropriate physical distancing in meeting rooms and hand sanitizer throughout the meeting venue.
