COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

Attendees must be fully vaccinated at the time of the meeting. Individuals will be asked to provide proof of this at the time of registration by up-loading a copy of their vaccination card clearly showing receipt of two or more doses of a WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccine. Acceptable vaccines will include FDA approved or authorized and WHO Emergency Use Listing vaccines.

Medical waivers will be allowed in the form of a Medical Exemption signed by a Physician accompanied by a negative COVID PCR test within 72 hours of the beginning of our meeting.

The online registration form will include a required check box by which meeting attendees attest that their vaccination status or physician-endorsed medical exemption is valid. Exempt participants will also be asked to sign an attestation document when submitting COVID test results at the time of check-in at the beginning of the meeting.

We want to be very clear that the meeting is on the campus of CU Boulder which will remain open to the public. The meeting spaces will not accommodate 3 feet social distancing, and masking will be as per CU policy. These policies are subject to change in response to campus, local, and state COVID requirements.

Society members or researchers who cannot or will not attend RNA 2022 in person under this policy will have an opportunity to access much of the scientific content on-line after the conclusion of the in-person event.
