Easy-to-use digital vaccination verification launches in Washington state

Need to prove your Covid-19 vaccination status in Washington state? There’s a new, digital way to do that in as little time as a minute.

WA Verify allows people who have been vaccinated in Washington state to receive a digital vaccination passport, which includes a QR code that can be used repeatedly.

You need only input your name and date of birth, which are then run through the state’s record system. You’ll also need to create a four-digit PIN during the application process, which you’ll need to retrieve your digital vaccine verification. You can access your record via email or mobile phone.

The WA Verify system may produce your vaccination passport within a matter of minutes — or it could take up to 24 hours. For families who may have more than one vaccination record associated with a single email address or phone number, the system requires separate verification applications.

If you received your shots from a federal agency, you will need to get in touch with them for assistance with the verification process.
