Will I have to have a vaccine card or passport to attend the ACFI?
No. However, a negative covid test will be required to attend. If you have been vaccinated and have a card or passport you may voluntarily present your proof of vaccination as a substitute for your negative covid test.
Will you still accept my vaccine card with an expired date?
Yes. The expiration date on a vaccine card is not the expiration date for the card itself. The expiration date is the “Use-by date” of the vaccine that you have taken and is used by medical personnel as a means of identifying the batch of vaccine that you have taken. It does not mean your card has expired.
I lost my vaccine card. How can I safely register for the convention?
Don’t worry. You can obtain a digital copy of your card by contacting the facility or location in which you had your vaccine administered. For more details go here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/immuno.html. If you are unable to obtain a copy of your vaccine card a negative covid test will be required.
Can I show an image of my vaccine card like a picture or digital copy?
Yes, however, the information on the card or image MUST match a valid ID or Driver’s License.
Which vaccines are accepted?
Any vaccine approved for use in the United States of America, Canada, or the European Union.
I have only had one of two shots of the vaccine administered. Can I still attend?
No. You will need to provide proof of a negative covid test UNLESS you received the vaccine that only required one-shot (IE Johnson and Johnson)
I am scheduled to get my second vaccine shot administered before the convention. Can I still attend as long as I have my second shot?
Yes, provided the second shot was administered 14 days before the convention start date.
Can I show a picture or image of my negative test results?
Yes. If you are unable to obtain a digital copy of proof for being negative for covid you can purchase a test at any health and/or medical supplies retailer and take a picture of the negative test. HOWEVER, you must present a receipt with proof of purchase that displays the DATE AND TIME OF PURCHASE and it MUST BE PURCHASED WITHIN 72 hours (Not before October 5th, 2021) of the convention.
If I have not received a booster shot, can I still attend the ACFI?
Yes. Booster shots are not a requirement to attend the convention, however, they are encouraged IF you are eligible to receive the booster shot.
What kind of Covid Testing do I need to get?
Any testing is accepted however, lab testing is preferable. If you utilize a test purchased from a medical supplies retailer, the negative result must be photographed next to your state-issued ID or Driver’s License AND presented with a receipt that shows the date and time the test was purchased.

No. We have a no refund policy, however, we will consider rolling your registration over to 2022. If you would like to do so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Registration Rollover to 2022” in the Subject Line.
