With safety being our number one priority, we are continuing to monitor current CDC guidelines as well as state/local guidelines.

We will be:

  • Requiring proof of vaccination, please submit here
  • Spatial distancing and wearing masks
  • Controlling flow and number of people on-site
  • Following strict site sanitation protocols throughout the day

The driving force for the vaccination requirement is to protect the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff at the indoor event. Based on current science that is in the interest of public health, the American Lung Association strongly believes that requiring a vaccination for our constituents participating in an indoor event, in addition to masking and other protocols, offers the best protection for the health and safety of those attending.

Thank you for asking and please rest assured that the American Lung Association takes data privacy seriously. The proof of vaccination is used solely for the purpose of ensuring that our events are in compliance with local regulations and/or the requirements of our event partners (e.g. lodging, dining facilities, etc.). We do maintain a record of proof of vaccination until the event has been completed. The vaccination proof is securely stored, restricted to limited employees on a need-to-know basis, and will be deleted entirely once the event has been completed.

Once you are registered, you will submit your proof of vaccination here.
