  • Health and Safety

  • The American Academy of Ophthalmology is committed to the health and safety of our meeting attendees, exhibitors, staff and meeting contractors. We look forward to welcoming you to AAO 2023 in San Francisco, home to our organization headquarters.

    • In line with best practices as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of California and City of San Francisco, AAO 2023 will not require proof of vaccination for entry to the meeting. However, everyone is strongly encouraged to get their flu shots and the latest COVID booster before arriving onsite. The Academy also endorses the use of masks.

    • The Academy is collaborating with local authorities, including San Francisco police, Moscone Convention Center administrators and the San Francisco Travel Association, to coordinate safety planning during AAO 2023.
