The CDC recommends people get vaccinated even if they have already had COVID-19, as evidence is emerging that being fully vaccinated provides greater protection. All people in the United States ages 12 and older are now eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines, and the FDA has fully approved the Pfizer vaccine for those 16 and over. Vaccines are free and widely available at more than 80,000 locations across the country, including over 40,000 retail pharmacies. Ninety percent of Americans live within five miles of a vaccine site. Hundreds of major companies have announced policies to require vaccinations for all or part of their workforce, adding to the millions of federal workers and contractors now required to show proof of vaccination.

A negative test must be presented in order to be in the show. It is medically demonstrated repeated negative tests provide a high degree of certainty that the individual is not infectious. Proof of vaccination: Alternatively, any participants who provides proof of full vaccination (accounting for the appropriate time period after the final vaccine) may bypass the routine testing requirement through the duration of the season. Medical Screening: Neither routine testing nor prior vaccination shall substitute for diligent screening on behalf of all participants. Participants who have been exposed or who are feeling unwell should notify show organizers immediately and decline participation in that week's events. Fla. Stat. § 381.00316(1) prohibits businesses from requiring their patrons to present "documentation certifying COVID-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery" for access or services. However, nothing in the Statute prohibits businesses from demanding documentation of a negative COVID-19 test or any other type of medical or informational documentation. In fact, because the Statute allows businesses to institute "screening protocols" to protect public health, business entities are expressly permitted to require this type of documentation, including COVID-19 test results, other vaccine documentation, and other types of medical information. Under Section 381.00316, the only documentation businesses cannot demand is COVID- 19 vaccine documentation. Accordingly, the statute is a content-based restriction because it singles out documentation regarding a particular subject matter (certification of "COVID-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery") and subjects it to restrictions (businesses may not require them for entry or services) that do not apply to documents regarding other topics. https://reason.com/volokh/2021/08/09/florida-ban-on-private-businesses-requiring-vaccine-verification-likely-violates-the-first-amendment/
