Vaccine Verification: What to Expect (VIDEO)

Beginning October 25, people ages 12 and older will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result to enter certain indoor and outdoor events and establishments in King County.

This requirement will help to protect customers and workers, protect our health care system (read a statement of support from the healthcare community), and prevent business closures as the Delta variant continues to spread in King County.

Check out this short video by King County TV about what to expect including:

  • Where proof of vaccination will be required
  • Acceptable proofs of vaccination
  • Options for people who are unvaccinated or unable to prove vaccine status
