What does SAL require for proof of vaccination?
Attendees must be fully vaccinated with a CDC– or WHO-authorized COVID-19 vaccine, and must show proof of vaccination upon entering the venue with their valid ticket. “Fully vaccinated” means the event date must be at least fourteen days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least fourteen days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
Proof of vaccination may include: a physical vaccination card, a scan or image of a physical vaccination card (printed or displayed on your mobile device), or a digital copy of your immunization records from a state health department-approved site.
I’m missing my COVID-19 vaccination card or never received one. How do I get proof?
If you live in Washington state, you can get free verified proof of your COVID-19 vaccination through MyIR Mobile, an internet-based portal that gives consumers access to their official state immunization records.
Can unvaccinated individuals attend with proof of a negative COVID test? What about unvaccinated minors?
f you cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19 due to age, medical conditions, religious beliefs, or any other reason, we encourage you to attend our events online.
Exceptions are being made for children younger than 12 years and people with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. Those individuals must have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the performance start time.
