    Health & Safety

    The American Academy of Ophthalmology is committed to the health and well-being of our meeting attendees, exhibitors, staff and meeting contractors. The Academy Board of Trustees has determined that proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all those attending the Academy’s annual meeting in Chicago.

    Due to the fluidity of the current situation, additional specific safety protocols for AAO 2022 may be announced closer to the meeting. All decisions will be based on best practices as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and mandates from both the State of Illinois and City of Chicago.

    Learn more about Health & Safety at the meeting.
