With nearly half of the U.S. adult population fully vaccinated and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention easing mask restrictions for vaccinated individuals, there’s hope that we may get a little closer to a more normal sense of daily life by summer. But if you are thinking about making travel plans or attending an outdoor festival or event, it’s unclear what situations may arise that will require you to show proof of being vaccinated, so you might want to start taking better care of your immunization card.
Laminating your card isn’t recommended because of the possibility that you will get a booster shot in the future and need to update it. Amazon sells inexpensive clear pockets that will protect your card from wear and tear, but if you want something with a little more personality, everyone from Etsy sellers to top fashion designers is making cardholders and lanyards to match your style and price range — and they are selling out fast.
Here are eight stylish cardholders to keep your vaccine card safe.
