The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) which organizes the trade show has not specified which vaccines would be considered acceptable.
We all have a responsibility to stop the spread. Which is why we are doing our part by requiring all CES 2022 in-person attendees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Learn more: https://t.co/YniyNCpWQZ— Gary Shapiro (@GaryShapiro) August 17, 2021
CTA said they 'will follow state and local guidelines and recommendations by the CDC', Keeping this in mind hints that they may accept only US-authorized vaccines.
However, those who are not vaccinated still have the option to attend online only.
