The indemnification provision requires the client to agree to reimburse the DMC and any other released parties (e.g., vendors) from any losses incurred related to the disease due to the attendee participating in an event. Ideally, this provision would be used in addition to the waiver of liability.
If attendees refuse to sign (or clients refuse to have attendees sign) the waiver of liability, this provision should be included in the event service agreement as an additional protection. In doing so, this can help transfer liability to the client if an attendee later files suit against the DMC because they allege to have been exposed or contracted COVID-19 as a result of the program.
*If your DMC has already downloaded the Event Service Agreement, you need not to purchase this provision because it is included therein.
