What happens on June 30 or when we hit 70%?

The state will be open for business and recreation on June 30, and people who are vaccinated can go along with their regular lives for the most part. Unvaccinated people will need to continue wearing masks indoors.

Most sectors get to operate as they did in January of 2020, with the caveat that they’re following workplace safety requirements. Restaurants, bars, bowling alleys, and grocery stores are going to be fully open. With the exception of large indoor events like sports, concerts, and conventions, there will be no capacity or occupancy limits. It is still recommended to keep watching your distance, wearing your mask, and washing your hands.

Access your COVID-19 vaccination records

You are automatically entered into Washington's "Shot of a Lifetime" lottery drawing if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and are in the Department of Health's Vaccine Database. MyIR Mobile is a tool you can use to confirm your vaccine records and access COVID-19 vaccination certificates.

Sign up for MyIR Mobile by going to and follow the registration instructions. Your registration information will be used to match your records with the state immunization registry. You will be sent a verification code on your phone which will finalize the process.

Once registration is complete, you’ll be able to view your immunization records and access your COVID-19 vaccination certificate. Printed records from MyIR Mobile do not meet school immunization requirements, so please sign up for (option 1) for valid school immunization documents.

Cause for celebration: Six months with a vaccine!

June marks six months since the COVID-19 vaccines arrived in Washington. As summer rapidly approaches, we’re all eager to enjoy outdoor gatherings, fun and adventure. But first, let’s take a moment to reflect on our progress as a state in helping to slow the spread of COVID-19.

All across Washington, people are getting the COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves and their communities. And the progress is really making a difference. According to the CDC, Washington ranks seventh highest in percentage of COVID-19 vaccines administered. With over 7.5 million vaccine doses already given, Washingtonians deserve a pat on the back.

It’s true that we’ve made tremendous progress in slowing the spread of COVID-19 with vaccinations. However, the level of transmission of COVID-19 was still fairly high as of mid-May. This means it’s still important for everyone [that can] to get vaccinated. And we still need to practice preventive measures like wearing masks, maintaining distance and taking gatherings outside if someone’s not vaccinated.

Read more about this milestone in this blog post from the Washington State Department of Health.
