Last Updated 01/06/2022


Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I am writing to share some important updates regarding the 340B Coalition Winter Conference being held Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 in San Diego. The enthusiasm for this conference has been overwhelming and reflects the 340B community’s strong ties and desire to advance our knowledge and skills. In fact, there has been so much demand for the event that rooms became limited at the Marriott Marquis and we have secured additional rooms at nearby hotels. I personally look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the conference.

We recognize that some people may not be able to travel to and participate in an in-person conference. In response to the challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 340B Coalition is expanding the number of options available to you to attend.

In addition to holding live, in-person sessions, we will be broadcasting all educational sessions live so that they are available for simultaneous online viewing. Conference registrants will be able to choose between attending the conference in person or accessing the sessions remotely via an online portal. Those attending the conference in person will also have the option to view a session online if they so choose. Read more


The 340B Coalition is committed to ensuring a safe return to meetings. The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, vendors, and staff is of upmost importance. By registering for this event, you agree that you will comply with the health and safety mandates that have been set up by the 340B Coalition and the State of California. The 340B Coalition will be continually monitoring developments around COVID-19 and working with our partners and vendors to ensure that all necessary safety measures are in place. We reserve the right to make changes to these requirements at any time.

If you are feeling sick prior to the meeting, do not attend.

Proof of Vaccination OR Negative COVID-19 Test Is Required for Attendance

The State of California requires that for indoor meetings and events over 500 people, ALL attendees and exhibitors must be vaccinated OR present a negative COVID-19 test result taken within one day of the event if it's a rapid antigen test or within two days for a PCR test. Self-attestation to verify vaccination status or negative test results will not be accepted.

The 340B Coalition will be using Health Pass by CLEAR to verify proof of vaccination. Health Pass by CLEAR provides a secure, digital proof of COVID-related health insights via the free CLEAR mobile app (Apple | Android). Complete your health screening with Health Pass by CLEAR ahead of time for expedited check-in and entry! If you are unable to use the Clear Health Pass app for any reason, or if you are providing a negative COVID test for entry, staff will be available to manually check your vaccination card or negative COVID test results. See below for information on acceptable forms of proof of vaccination or negative test results.

For the most efficient entry possible, every vaccinated attendee should enroll with CLEAR before the event to complete their COVID-19 pre-screening. Once your vaccination record has been uploaded to the platform, it can typically take up to 30 minutes for your status to be verified. We encourage all vaccinated attendees to complete this process at least 24 hours before the event. Click here for more information on how to enroll with Clear.

What is Considered Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination?

If you provide proof of vaccination for entry, attendees and exhibitors must present a paper or digital copy of CDC-issued vaccination card or other documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider along with photo ID that matches name on vaccination card or documentation. 

  • The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination: Uploading their vaccine information in the Health Pass by CLEAR app OR a vaccination card (which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided and date last dose administered) OR a printed copy of a photo of a vaccination card OR a photo of the attendee's vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device OR documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider. 
  • Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose regimen of Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson administered two weeks or more in advance of the event, i.e. by January 16, 2022. 

What is Considered Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test? (New Information)

If you provide a negative test result for entry, attendees and exhibitors must present paper or digital copy of negative COVID-19 test along with a matching photo ID.

  • The following are acceptable as proof of a negative COVID-19 test result: printed document (from the test provider or laboratory) OR an email or text message displayed on a phone or electronic device from the test provider or laboratory. The information provided should include name of person tested and date of negative test result. 
  • Test needs to be taken within one day of the first day of arrival at the event if it's a rapid antigen test or within two days for a PCR test (i.e, if your first day is on Monday, you need to have taken a rapid antigen test on Sunday or a PCR test on Saturday and results must be received by the time you arrive at Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina on Monday). You will only need to show proof of the negative test upon arrival at registration and it will satisfy this requirement for the length of the meeting.

Guidance for the Use of Masks (New Information January 6, 2022)

All attendees must follow the CDPH Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings .

  • The State of California implemented a mask mandate starting on December 15, 2021 and recently extended it through February 15, 2022. Masks are required to be worn in all indoor settings regardless of vaccine status. The mask mandate will be in effect within the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina so masks must be worn at all times unless actively eating or drinking. This includes in sessions, the exhibit hall, and public spaces like hallways and elevators.
  • Masks are required for all individuals indoors throughout the state, regardless of vaccination status, including on public transit (examples: airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares) and in transportation hubs (examples: airport, bus terminal, marina, train station, seaport or other port, subway station, or any other area that provides transportation).

On-Site Protocol for Individuals Feeling Ill

Please do not come to the meeting and attend any sessions if you are feeling ill.
