Boston Marathon Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination or Test Onsite

Bermuda Runners arriving at the Boston Marathon Expo must provide proof that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested onsite for the event set, which is set to take place from October 8th to 10th.

The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) said that runners who received doses from two different vaccine brands – which many Canadians have – must also wait for test results before being admitted to the event.

"Prior to bib number pick-up, Boston Marathon participants will be required to either produce proof of a complete vaccination series of a World Health Organization (WHO)-certified vaccine or produce a negative COVID-19 test, which will be administered on site in a Boston Marathon medical tent," said the B.A.A. in a statement, as reported by Canadian Running.

"A WHO certified vaccine is considered to be both doses of a two-dose vaccine, or one dose of a singular dose vaccine.

"If you do not have one of the previously mentioned WHO certified vaccines, you will need to be tested at the Boston Marathon medical tent.

"If you have received a mixed dose of two different vaccines, you will need to be tested at the Boston Marathon medical tent.

"Vaccine verification will occur Friday, October 8 through Sunday, October 10th in co-ordination with the Boston Marathon Expo hours.

"Participants may bring an original paper copy, digital copy, photocopy, or photo of their vaccination proof."

Organizers are keen to ensure that the race is coronavirus-free and are encouraging participants to receive inoculations.
