Vaccine Verification

PyCon US is partnering with ShareMy.Health to provide proof of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination for safe attendance at our event. Registered attendees will receive an invite link via email to create their ShareMy.Health account. Attendees should complete this process before the event as no onsite registration will be allowed.

Using the ShareMy.Health Platform

  1. In-person attendees with a confirmed conference registration will receive the details to the PyCon US 2022 ShareMy.Health dashboard in the first attendee email. The attendee email will be sent out around April 5th.
  2. Open the invite link, sent via email, and create your account on the ShareMy.Health platform.
  3. Complete the verification process and upload a photo of your COVID-19 vaccination card/country-issued vaccination passport/digital COVID-19 certificate. Screenshots are only accepted if your COVID-19 vaccination certificate is in a digital format. Attendees will be able to upload their information starting 30 days before the start of the conference.
  4. Proof of vaccination will be verified by ShareMy.Health’s Center of Excellence. Attendees who are approved will receive verification via email and receive their Digital Health Pass QR code. A green checkmark will appear on your dashboard and your status will read as “Validated”.

At PyCon US
