We have updated our COVID-19 vaccination policy as of April 2022 (as reflected on our COVID-19 Policy Page):
Everyone attending the convention—including members, vendors, and any contractors—must be up to date on their COVID vaccines two weeks before the con starts. Up to date means a person has received all recommended doses in their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine; and for individuals 12 and older, one booster dose if their primary series was completed more than six months before the con.
At Registration, we will be checking vaccination cards to verify that EITHER:
- a primary series was completed before November 27, 2021 AND a booster shot was administered on or before May 12, 2022, OR
- a primary series was completed on or after November 27, 2021 and before May 12, 2022.
Given that as of 4/13/2022 the CDC has not approved vaccines for children under 5, children under 5 will not be allowed to attend WisCon 2022. Hopefully we will see more smols next con!
For those coming to WisCon from other countries: we will accept proof that you have received any vaccine recognized by the WHO. More information on WHO recognition of COVID vaccines can be found on their website.
