Some businesses, schools, and restaurants require proof of vaccination. There are several options for showing proof of vaccination status beyond carrying the paper vaccination card, including:
- the MyIR Mobile Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination (printed or screenshot),
- a printout from the Washington State Immunization Information System;
- a verified electronic medical record printout from your medical provider; and
- having a photograph of the card on your cell phone.
These options are available to anyone who got the COVID-19 vaccine, including children. Parents can use any of these methods to access and show their children’s vaccination records. Some locations may only accept one specific type of vaccine proof, so it’s a good idea to confirm what kind of proof you need ahead of time.
Vaccine records are also available by registering online or by making a written request by mail, fax, or email to the Washington State Department of Health at:
