The health and safety of our attendees, presenters, exhibitors, staff, guests, vendors, and local residents is of utmost importance to DIA. Please read on for information regarding
The COVID-19 pandemic is constantly changing, but DIA’s commitment to the health and safety of our constituents remains consistent. Because of DIA’s unwavering commitment to protecting and preserving public health we have made the decision that all participants at in-person DIA Meetings, Workshops, Forums and Conferences, whether a presenter, attendee, exhibitor, staff, guest, or vendor, are required to be fully vaccinated. If you are unable to be vaccinated due to medical condition, disability or a sincerely held religious belief, we offer an option for online access to DIA’s events.
Participants must provide proof of vaccination after registering for an in-person event.” The CDC’s definition of “fully vaccinated” is a person who has received their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and is two weeks past their final dose of the primary series. In the US, the primary series is defined as two doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, two doses of Moderna, one dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen. Our vaccine verification software can accept and review international vaccine dosages. DIA strongly encourages all attendees to stay up to date on vaccinations, which means receiving the booster dose(s) when eligible, as extra protection.
If you have a religious or medical reason that prevents you from obtaining a vaccination, DIA invites you to consider the virtual-only experience. DIA recognizes and respects that all who choose to participate will make the best decision for themselves and will be responsible for their own choices.
DIA will not accept onsite registrations for the meeting. All attendees must have registered at least one week prior to the meeting and provided proof of vaccine.
