Howdy, friends. As a lot of us have started our ~masked and vaxed~ journeys with vaccines becoming more available to different groups in each state, you might have noticed something about those cute little vaccine cards: they do *not* play nice with wallets.
According to my arch nemesis math, that's because the vaccine cards measure at 4 x 3 inches, which is slightly bigger than a standard credit card — and makes it a little more difficult to keep your precious vaccine card safe, since it doesn't fit in your default "place where I keep things safe."
And although this has been iterated many bajillions of times, it is super important to keep that lil' paper safe and on hand — in the short-term for anyone getting a second dose needing proof of their first, and in the long-term for whatever the slow reopenings will look like ahead.
So in the interest of keeping your vaccine card safe, here are a few options online for affordable (and downright cute??) vaccine card options to keep it from getting damaged, wet, or lost.
1.A two-pack of standard clear vinyl vaccination card sleeves, complete with holes on the top to fit lanyards. This one has a little extra room at the top (handy if there are other small documents you might want to fold and slide in there with it, like appointment confirmations!)
3.A leather card holder with engraving options (Mother's Day *and* Father's Day are rapidly approaching, just saying ...). These also come equipped with extra credit card-sized slots so you *could* swap it out for a wallet in a pinch (or keep insurance cards grouped with it if need be).
4.A two-pocket patterned vaccine card holder that's arguably your cutest option, but also a handy one — the two pockets are secure, but just wide enough to fit multiple cards in them, if you're keeping track of your family members' cards in addition to yours.
5.A customizable vaccine card holder you can attach to a keychain, lanyard, or the inside of a bag zipper for easy access.
