HLAA 2022 Convention

Vaccination Requirement


HLAA has made the decision that all participants at the in-person HLAA 2022 Convention at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street, whether a presenter, attendee, exhibitor, staff, guest, or vendor, will be required to be fully vaccinated. Participants must provide proof of vaccination to register for the in-person event.

Provide Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination

HLAA requires that all registrants send a picture or a copy of their vaccine card with both online and in-person registration forms. All information gathered will remain confidential. We have three easy options to provide your vaccination card.

  1. Email a copy or picture of your vaccine card to verify@hearingloss.org.
  2. Upload a copy or picture of your card to a secure Dropbox account here.
  3. Mail a copy or picture of your vaccine card with your paper registration form to the HLAA office.
    • 6116 Executive Blvd., Suite 320
      Rockville, MD 20852

You have 7 days from our receipt of your registration form to provide a copy of your vaccination card. If we don’t receive it within 7 days, then your registration will be rejected and refunded.
