Hi Nakama! In light of the recent FDA Authorization for the COVID-19 Vaccine booster for ages 5-11, we wanted to provide some clarification to our policy.
Only attendees 12 years of age or older are required to have the booster under our policy. For children aged 5-11, they will be considered fully vaccinated under our policy so long as they have completed the base course of the vaccine.
