Redhat check when package was updated

Is there a way to check when a package was updated on your redhat system?

Like this ?
rpm -qi some_package | grep ^Install

or, for multiple packages at once, try:
pkgs=( package1 package2 package 3 )
rpm -qi "${pkgs[@]}" | grep -E '^(Name|Install)' | paste - -

Using the package vim-enhanced as example:
rpm -q --qf '%{INSTALLTIME:date}\n' vim-enhanced

Using several packages
rpm -q --qf '%{NAME}: %{INSTALLTIME:date}\n' vim-enhanced sqlite
vim-enhanced: Mon 13 Nov 2017 10:15:46 PM UTC
sqlite: Mon 11 Sep 2017 06:35:06 PM UTC

All packages
rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}: %{INSTALLTIME:date}\n'
