If proof of vaccination is required for my show, what evidence will you accept?
We are following the US Center for Disease Control’s definition of ‘fully vaccinated’: two weeks after a second dose in a 2-dose series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. At this time, booster doses are not required to attend Sofar shows, but this is subject to change in the future.
Please bring your vaccination card with you to the event (photos will be accepted). We'll accept any government-issued proof of vaccination, even if from a country outside of where the show is taking place.
If your show is in a city or region that has its own verification method (e.g. NY State Excelsior Pass, NHS app, etc), this will also be accepted, but must show that you have been fully vaccinated per the definition above.
What if I can't provide this?
In some instances, we may be able to accept a note from a healthcare professional in lieu of proof of vaccination if you are not eligible to be vaccinated. If this applies to you, contact us to confirm the information we'll need from you to grant an exception.
If proof of a negative test result is accepted at my show, what evidence will you accept?
We will accept PCR and antigen test results, from tests taken within 72 hours before the show.
For shows in the UK, at-home test results are accepted, but must be registered with the NHS. These can be shown via the NHS app or any equivalent official documentation, e.g. a vaccine card or a letter from a health professional.
Unfortunately, right now we aren't able to accept at-home tests in the US or Canada, since there isn't a way to time-stamp the result by registering it.
Will you accept antibody tests?
We will not accept tests that indicate whether an individual has antibodies or has had COVID-19 in the past.
