Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Process & FAQs

Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Required

Your health and safety are important to us. Only individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be able to participate in-person at CES® 2022 in Las Vegas. A list of approved vaccines can be found here. Use the CDC Vaccine Finder to find a COVID-19 vaccination location near you.

To simplify and speed up badge pickup at CES, we will use CLEAR  to collect proof of vaccination for U.S. based attendees. Non-U.S. based attendees must present proof of vaccination at a designated location. Once you have provided your proof of vaccination and picked up your badge, you will not need to verify your vaccination status again. Details on the processes for U.S. based attendees and non-U.S. based attendees, along with answers to frequently asked questions can be found below.

New for CES 2022: all registrants must pickup their own CES 2022 official badge at remote badge pickup locations. More information on the new remote badge pickup process is available here.


U.S. Based Attendees

CES has partnered with CLEAR Health Pass to provide quick and easy proof of vaccination for U.S. based attendees. For the most efficient entry into CES possible, all registrants should sign up for CLEAR and complete their COVID-19 proof of vaccination as soon as possible, but at least 24 hours before arriving at badge pick up locations.

Non-U.S. Based Attendees

Non-U.S. based attendees, as well as U.S. based attendees unable to use CLEAR, will need to provide their proof of vaccination at designated locations on-site.

How to Provide Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination On-Site 

Non-U.S. based attendees, and those not using the CLEAR app, must present either a digital or hard copy of their vaccine record. Photocopies will be accepted. Digital vaccination certificates and mobile applications that many countries have issued will also be accepted. Vaccine records must clearly state the following: 

  • Full name
  • Type of vaccine administered
  • Date of when the vaccine was received
  • Location where vaccine was administered


Important: buying, selling or using a fraudulent vaccination card is a state and federal crime

In addition to providing a copy of their vaccine record, attendees will need to provide a government-issued photo ID that matches the name on their vaccine record, and their CES registration confirmation to pick up their CES 2022 badge. 

 

Where to Provide Proof of Vaccination On-Site

Attendees not using the CLEAR app must go to one of the McCarran Airport Badge Pickup locations or a designated Customer Service Center location to show their COVID-19 vaccine documentation. Customer Service Centers are located in public access areas before you reach the CES security checkpoint.

We recommend attendees arriving at McCarran Airport use one of the designated Badge Pickup locations in the airport terminal, located in Terminals 1 and 3. Additional Customer Service Centers are located below. Hours of operation for each location can be found here
