    Hey, NB, I noticed AztraZeneca doesn't count as a vaccine. I think this puts Hughfreaking out.

    When they play Canada, wonder if our policies will include J&J...

    There is still time to get them all lol. It is unforunate that they are not allowing some vaccines to be accepted especially since it is not the efficacy that is in question.

    I have Astra, got the “best available” to me at the time. I’m not getting another vax at this point and truthfully find it unfair if I have to spend extra money to get a test to enter the fest, while double vaxed, simply because I have Astra. 
    Hopefully that vax is added to the acceptable list.

    can't assume, but I would think that this may have been an oversight by the festival not thinking off the top that attendeees are not just from US, imagine it would be fixable. 
    His eminence has yet to show.

    If I'm reading the Ohana policy properly, I don't think they're saying it has to be one of those 3 -- they're saying that if you aren't vaccinated yet, you can still get one of the three that are available in the US in time for the festival.

    I would imagine they'll accept any of the WHO-approved vaccines (which does include AZ), but it doesn't hurt to email them to double-check.

    Is there any new information for EU/UK people who bought tickets and now can’t attend due to the US travel ban? Can’t seem to see anything.

    J&J is an approved vaccine in Canada. It is accepted for crossing the border.

    I got a response on Instagram from the festival, Astra will be accepted!

    Sorry I posted this elsewhere but looking for an a confirmation.

    The sea hear now website says we have to bring a "printed copy" of our vaccination record. I am interpreting that to mean we ca make a photocopy of our card so we don't have to bring our original. Anyone else have different information?

    For anyone else curious/paranoid like me, I received an email from the festival today saying a printed out copy of my card is fine.
  • Is there any word on mask requirements for the shuttles? I don’t see anything.

    I am taking more than one. Between the airports,  flights, shuttles and at the festival itself, if it is crowded where I am standing, I will have a mask on quite a bit over the course of the weekend. 
  • 8.    WILL MASKS BE REQUIRED? ‍
    • Masks will be required on the shuttles to/from the festival.
    • Masks are recommended at the festival, but not required, per state guidelines. Complimentary masks will be available on site per request.
