Know Before You Go
Starting November 4, 2021, Los Angeles City Ordinance No. 187219 will now require that all guests eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine must provide proof of confirmation that they are fully vaccinated. “Fully vaccinated” means it has been at least (a) two weeks after receiving a single dose vaccine, or (b) two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two dose vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization (WHO) or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) including by way of an emergency use authorization, or by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Attendees 18 years of age or older will need to bring proof of vaccination, as well as a photo ID. Acceptable forms of ID are a government issued ID, driver’s license, passport, or school or work ID that matches the name on the vaccination card. Per Los Angeles City Ordinance No. 187219, guests who are 12 -17 years old are also required to provide proof of vaccination, but there is no requirement to provide photo identification. Guests under 12 years of age are not required to provide ID, proof of vaccination, or proof of negative COVID-19 test. Types of acceptable proof of COVID-19 vaccination are as follows:
- A physical vaccination card
- A photo of a physical vaccination card that includes front and back images
- A digital verification obtained from myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov
- A digital verification that confirms your vaccination status from your assigned vaccination site
Vaccination accommodations will be considered on an individual basis for guests with a qualifying medical condition that prevents them from receiving the vaccination or who object to being vaccinated on the basis of sincerely held religious beliefs and practices. Individuals requesting a religious or medical accommodation will need to complete an attestation form upon arrival and, consistent with Los Angeles City Ordinance No. 187219, must also provide proof of a negative COVID-19 lab test (PCR or antigen) taken within 72 hours of the screening. Along with their ticket, attendees will need to bring either a physical COVID-19 test result, an emailed result, or picture of a result showing a negative diagnosis dated within 72 hours of the screening with a name that matches your photo ID.
