PAC Safety Protocols

As determined by the Patient Access Collaborative, our health and safety policies require all attendees, speakers, hosts and support staff, to:

  • Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination  
  • Follow PAC's policies regarding personal protection.
  • Evaluate your health each morning before committing to joining the day’s activities.

Attendees are asked to follow relevant guidance by the CDC. These policies might evolve over time as new data becomes available. We will keep you informed of any changes to attendee expectations.
