Everyone participating in PAX Unplugged, including exhibitors, fans, Enforcers and our PAX staff, will need to be fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved or authorized by the FDA or WHO against COVID-19 in order to attend and must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry.

“Full vaccination” means that your date of entry toPAX Unplugged is at least 14 days after your final dose of an FDA/WHO approved or authorized vaccine. For our full FDA/WHO approved/authorized vaccine list, please see our FAQs.

PAX Unplugged has partnered with CLEAR Health Pass, to allow for easy proof of COVID-19 vaccination status and faster entry. To get started, download the CLEAR app and enroll for free here:

So… how do I get into PAX Unplugged?

To enter the Pennsylvania Convention Center or pick up your badges at Will Call, you will need a wristband first to indicate that you have verified your vaccination status.

We’ll have vaccine verification stations accessible in the Grand Hall of the PCC that will make it quick and easy for you to verify your vaccination status and receive your wristband. 

Your wristband will confirm that your vaccination has been checked and will be valid for all the days you’re attending our event.

Step 1:

Do this part today! Right now! We’ve partnered with CLEAR Health Pass to create the fastest and easiest way for you to verify vaccination. For more information and how to add a fully vaccinated minor (age 14-17) to your CLEAR Health Pass, please check out our Clear Health Pass Process.

Option 1:  CLEAR Health Pass
This option is only available for fully vaccinated fans ages 14 and up who received the COVID-19 vaccine in the United States. All other individuals must use Option 2. 

Option 2: On-site Manual Validation

This option is available for fans fully vaccinated outside of the United States, and fully vaccinated fans age 5-13.

Fans can provide proof of vaccination using one of the following approved methods on-site at PAX Unplugged: 

  • A Government Issued Vaccination Record (paper or photo)

You will present a government-issued photo ID and an approved vaccination record demonstrating proof of Full Vaccination with an authorized or approved vaccine.  

Please note that all restrictions and requirements are subject to change. Please refer to our website often for current guidelines.

Step 2:

Go to the Vaccination Verification Station in the Grand Hall of the PCC to show your information and receive your wristband. Please keep your wristband on for all the days you’ll be attending PAX Unplugged so that you don’t need to re-verify your vaccination credentials.

Step 3:

Head into the show!

If you need to pick up your badges, you’ll head to Will Call which is also located in the Grand Hall. You will not be able to pick up your badges PRIOR to visiting the Vaccination Verification Station and receiving your wristband. You must do that step first.

If you already have your badges, you will follow the signs to the main entrance.
