Q. Do I need to show my photo ID with my proof of vaccination? 
A. The CLEAR Health Pass app verifies your identity. You will only need your ID if you are unable to use the CLEAR Health Pass.

We recommend that you upload your information into the free CLEAR app. To use CLEAR Health Pass, download the free CLEAR cell phone app, tap the Health Pass Tile, select Capital One Arena, and enroll. From there, follow the prompts to include your proof of vaccination. If you are unable to utilize CLEAR, a digital or physical copy of your vaccine card along with photo ID will suffice.
