COVID-19 Vaccine Information

We will be requiring all attendees to upload proof of vaccination before attending the conference. Proof of full vaccination consists of your vaccine card with two shots by November 1, 2022 per the CDC's recommendation. To save time onsite, please upload a photo of your card to 42chat. Once uploaded, staff from 42chat will review and approve vaccine cards. All information uploaded is confidential. 

Once approved, you will receive an approved status text that will show your name and a green checkmark. You must show the approved green checkmark screen at the time of badge pickup. ‚Äč

November 14 Update: The pre-conference vaccine upload deadline has passed. If you did not verify your card via 42Chat by Sunday, November 13, you must report to the Onsite Registration desk and show a physical or photocopy of your card before your badge will print. Please arrive early - there may be a line.

This year we are excited to have a record number of registrants joining us at #2022APPAM, but this also means to expect long wait times if you choose to not upload your vaccine card in advance. If you do not have proof of vaccination, you will not be able to participate in the conference in any capacity and you will be asked to leave. There are no exemptions or exceptions.
