First of all, thank goodness your horse is being moved into a much cleaner barn/pasture situation!
I wouldn't worm him again so soon, but I would definatelysuggest that you make it a top priority to always know your horse's worming schedule! I know there is so much to keep on top of in horse ownership, and believe me, I had a lot to learn myself!
My vet had me bring in a sample of fresh manure to do a fecal egg count. Even though it cost $24.00, it was very well worth it!! He then was able to tell me the exact one to use, based on the test - therefore, no guessing games or "hit and miss" with all the brands out there.
My horse was only boarded for a short time before I brought her home, so I've always done it myself - even when she was boarded. There should be no reason why you can't do it if you want to. That way you'll know, (I write everything down with dates given in a binder), and as his owner, you'll know what to report to the Vet if there should (heaven forbid!) be an illness or problem.
I've always had a good peace of mind being on top of things like this, as well as all of her other regular checks. Best of luck in your new stable! :)
