In-Person Attendance Requirements

Scientists, exhibitors, speakers, and others fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may join SOT in San Diego, March 27–31, 2022, for the SOT 61st Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. Others are invited and encouraged to participate in the livestreams of Scientific Sessions remotely through the enhanced 2022 meeting experience.

As a scientific society focused on improving public health, SOT is committed to hosting a safe meeting that adheres to the best medical advice available and in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations. Requiring proof of vaccination, as mandated by California regulations, or documented medical exemptions for those attending the SOT meeting on-site in San Diego allows the Society to adhere to its mission and principles. This requirement also protects any SOT members in more vulnerable health positions (e.g., aged 65+, immunocompromised). By providing an enhanced meeting experience that will make many Scientific Sessions available for livestreaming and on-demand viewing, those who cannot join the Society in San Diego will be able to benefit by registering for the meeting.

Details on how to provide vaccination documentation will be provided before the meeting begins.

Toxicologists, trainees, those from related fields, and others who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may attend the SOT 61st Annual Meeting and ToxExpo on-site in San Diego. Many registrant types are available and can be selected while using the online registration system; select registrant types, as outlined on this page, require unique registration processes.

Enhanced Participation

As part of the enhanced 2022 SOT meeting experience, registrants who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can attend Scientific Sessions in person in San Diego, and all registrants can watch most of them remotely through livestreams. Individuals on-site and remote also will be able to engage in live question-and-answer discussions during most sessions. In addition, all streamed sessions will be viewable on demand for all registrants upon a session’s conclusion.

Registration Confirmation and Badge Pickup

You should receive a registration confirmation via email, whether you register directly online or send your Registration Form to the SOT Registration Department via email, mail, or fax. If you don’t receive your confirmation within two weeks, please contact SOT Headquarters or call 703.438.3115.

Per California regulations, proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required for all on-site attendees to ensure the safety and health of all participants. To facilitate the confirmation of proof of vaccination, all badges will be picked up on-site in San Diego. Details on how vaccination proof or medical exemption documentation will be collected and reviewed will be communicated before the meeting.

Because all registrants will pick up their badges and event tickets on-site, please allow extra time upon arriving at the San Diego Convention Center to acquire your badge before your first planned activity.
