When Should I get an Updated COVID-19 Vaccine?

When to get your updated COVID vaccine depends on your age, how many vaccine doses you’ve already gotten, and when you got them. In January of 2023, the Department of Health and Human Services issued new guidance on when to update your booster. Essentially, all vaccinated people 6 months and older should get an updated vaccine now if your last dose was before September 2022 (October 2022 for kids 6 months – 11 years).

How to Access Your Vaccine Records

Washington State offers an authorized service called MyIR Mobile which allows you to safely access your immunization records online.

It’s free, it’s official, and it’s secure. Once registered, you can access all of your vaccination records — including your COVID-19 vaccine records.

Masking

All people, regardless of vaccination status, are still required to wear masks in certain places, including health care settings like Unity Care NW.
