STS requires that all professional registrants, faculty, exhibitors, guests, and STS staff be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their attendance. Attendees are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after the second dose in a two-dose series, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine; and, if eligible, have received a booster shot.
STS has partnered with 42Chat/HealthShield, a third-party SMS texting-based service that will manage the collection of vaccine documentation. You will need to provide a telephone number through which you can be reached by SMS texting. Attendees will receive an invitation with instructions on how to upload their proof of vaccination in August.
