What you need to know to attend AAPEX this year

An email with the subject, “Health Screening: What You Need to Know Before AAPEX” outlines the procedures and practices all attendees, including exhibitors, visitors and media, must adhere to.

AAPEX show organizers have released information regarding covid-19 testing and vaccination requirements for the show in November. 

An email with the subject, “Health Screening: What You Need to Know Before AAPEX” outlines the procedures and practices all attendees, including exhibitors, visitors and media, must adhere to.

“As part of the entry requirements for the AAPEX 2021, all attendees (that includes exhibitor staff, media and anyone else on site) must provide either proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a no more than 3-day-old negative COVID-19 test in order to enter. AAPEX has partnered with CLEAR Health Pass, to provide easy proof of COVID-19 vaccination for faster entry,” the email says.

The email adds, “More details on the non-vaccination testing option will be shared soon.

Clear is a company that provides faster screening at certain airports and stadiums in the United States. Many travelers know it as a way to clear airport security, much like the government TSA PreCheck program. 

“If you do not live in the United States, you will not be able to upload proof of vaccination to CLEAR. However, more details will be shared on how you’ll be cleared for onsite access shortly,” the AAPEX email says. 

The email further explains:

“If you live in the United States and have received a COVID-19 vaccine, enroll and complete your Health Pass before arriving. Here’s how:

Option 2: Link proof of vaccination—Digital link

Select your vaccine provider in the menu or by searching ‘other providers.’ Log in to your patient portal and follow instructions to securely link your account with CLEAR. The CLEAR app is integrated with select healthcare providers and pharmacies.

If you are unable to find your provider in search, CLEAR may not be able to link with them at this time. Please go back and upload a photo of your CDC Vaccine Card!

Check that your COVID-19 vaccine appears in your patient portal; if not we recommend you reach out to your provider directly.

If found, your results will link automatically. It may take up to 1 hour to verify your results within Health Pass—do not try to re-sync your results.
