Where to get a vaccine or test for Bonnaroo after festival implements COVID-19 requirements
Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival announced Tuesday it would require festival-goers to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result upon entry as the delta variant continues to surge across the United States.
The deadline to get the second dose of a Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is Thursday, Aug. 19, the festival said in a statement.
This Aug. 19 deadline gives enough time, 14 days, for an individual to be considered fully vaccinated after getting the shot before Bonnaroo kicks off on Sept. 2, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
If you're not vaccinated, Bonnaroo said it will require a negative COVID-19 test result from a 72-hour window before arriving on festival grounds. This applies to people who lost their vaccination card or those who won't be vaccinated before the Aug. 19 deadline.
If you don't make the 72-hour window for COVID-19 testing, there will be onsite testing available for $40 upon entry to Bonnaroo.
While it's too late to get the first shot of a two-dose vaccine before Bonnaroo — since there is a required 21-28 day period in between vaccinations, plus 14 days after the second dose to be fully protected — there is still enough time to get the Johnson & Johnson shot, which only requires one jab.
The latest data from the CDC shows the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is 66.3% effective in clinical trials. The J&J vaccine is also 95% effective against death from the delta variant and up to 71% efficient against hospitalization, according to a study by Sisonke in South Africa that has not yet been peer-reviewed or published.
