HealthShield Screening and Proof of Vaccination

Health Screening and Proof of Vaccination

In-person attendees will complete a daily health screening and upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination with an easy-to-use tool called HealthShield.

GSA is requiring this process to provide confidence in the safety of meeting attendees and to ensure that every arriving attendee can attest to their current health status.



HealthShield uses text messages to guide you through screening and document submission—no app required.

The screening consists of three simple questions recommended by the CDC. Attendees must complete the health screening daily before entering the Oregon Convention Center.

You can also complete the screening process at the entrance doors of the convention center; however, completing it beforehand will be much faster.
