Due to a surge in new COVID-19 cases in late 2021 and early 2022, the City of Chicago implemented a new vaccine requirement to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Effective Jan. 3, 2022, any individual age 5 and older is required to provide proof of vaccination to dine indoors, visit gyms, or enter venues where food or drink are being served. The McCormick Place Convention Center Chicago, headquarters for the AOA/American Optometric Student Association (AOSA) Optometry’s Meeting® 2022, will adhere to these requirements and require proof of vaccination for attendance.
