While we’ve all been excited for a vaccinated summer, the CDC inconveniently made vaccination cards just slightly too big for most standard sized wallets. Which makes it a pain in the ass to carry it around with you. Of course, this is a minuscule problem compared to the last 15 months, but still. Can’t we just have something easy?
Luckily, people have been quick to fill our unique pandemic product needs. Cloth face masks became huge on Etsy early on in the pandemic, and now vaccine card holders are A Thing.
Vaccination card holders look like the ID badge part of your wallet, but they’re specifically sized to actually house your vax card without bending the edges. Just slip it in your bag or pocket so you can keep proof of your vaccination status on hand.
There are clear badge holders that you can get for cheap on Amazon, but if you want something a little more stylish, check out these fun vaccine card holders. (A sentence I would never have imagined writing two years ago.)
These cool, muted leather vaccine holders are available in five colors and offer personalization if you want the sleeve to have a design on it. Honestly though, these things look stylish as hell on their own without any customization. The metal clasp allows you to hook your card onto your bag so you know exactly where it is without having to dig around.
