2023 Health and Safety Policy

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

APHA is requiring all in-person attendees to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination. Attendees must have completed either of the following:

Full primary series plus one updated booster   Updated vaccine since September 2023
  1. Two shots of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or one shot of the Johnson and Johnson product (or a comparably approved vaccine if you are an international attendee).
  2. One updated booster (also called the bivalent booster) since September 2022.
One shot of the updated Pfizer or Moderna vaccine made available in September 2023, no matter what previous vaccines you may or may not have received. 

By registering for the event, you agree to comply with our COVID-19 vaccination requirement by Oct. 27. Guests who are unable to show proof of vaccination will not be allowed to enter the event.

While not required for attendance at APHA 2023, we strongly encourage everyone to get one of the recently approved updated COVID-19 vaccines. See more from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. We also recommend everyone receive the flu vaccination.

Mask Policy

As of June 5, masks are encouraged, but not required. However, this policy is subject to change based on local/state/federal public health guidelines at the time of the meeting.
