Key to NYC: Proof of Vaccination

Effective September 13, 2021, by New York City mandate, enforcement of the “Key to NYC” requirements begins for all indoor NYC events. All NYC indoor event attendees who are at least 12 years old and all event staff must show proof that they are vaccinated and have a photo ID to present upon request to prove identity.

Photocopies of vaccination cards are acceptable. Originals are not required. Go to New York City’s Key to NYC page to learn more.

(Residents of the state of New York can use the Excelsior Pass as a handy proof of vaccination. It is an app on your smart phone or you can print it out from the website.)

The New York State Excelsior Pass is one convenient option that New York residents can use to show proof of vaccination. All other proof of vaccination methods are acceptable, too. They include a CDC Vaccination Card (a photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable), a NYC Vaccination Record or other official immunization record from within or outside the U.S., including from your health care provider (a photo or photocopy is also acceptable), or the NYC COVID Safe App.
