We strongly encourage you to arrive prior to the start of the show on Thursday to verify your full vaccination status to receive a wristband valid for all days of the show and pick up your badge.
You will not be permitted to pick-up badges for other individuals this year, each person must come to Will Call in the Crystal Palace to pick up their badge. You will only need to verify your vaccination once as long as you keep your wristband on for the entirety of the show.
When you arrive to the Crystal Palace you will be required to show proof of full vaccination to receive your wristband.
“Full vaccination” means that your date of entry to NYCC is at least 14 days after your final dose of an FDA/WHO approved or authorized vaccine. For our full FDA/WHO approved/authorized vaccine list, please see our FAQs.
