Keep track of your COVID-19 vaccination record

Once you are vaccinated, is important to keep track of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. It is an official record that may be needed for travel, event access, or possibly booster doses down the road. Some businesses and organizations are also offering incentives for those who provide proof of vaccination. 

If you misplaced your card, you can get official, verified proof of vaccination by signing up for MyIR, which is Washington's free immunization records website. Getting verification through this website will take some time, so please visit the website and get your certification before you leave home to allow yourself time to work through the process. Those with questions can call the Washington State Office of Immunization and Child Profile at 360-236-3595.
