For those unable to be vaccinated for reasons such as medical conditions or religious beliefs, a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the meeting may be substituted for vaccine proof. Your registration is not final, and you will not be permitted to attend, unless and until proof of vaccination or negative PCR test has been uploaded and accepted. The American Academy of Family Physicians is continually assessing the status of our upcoming meetings and events in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic and will evolve these safety protocols as appropriate. We encourage you to visit our Health and Safety Protocols page to stay abreast of the latest updates.

    • Two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or
    • Two weeks after a single dose vaccine, such as Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
