Keep Your Vaccine Card Safe with These Functional (and Stylish) Cases and Protectors
You'll likely be carrying your vaccine card around with you for the foreseeable future, so it's vital to keep it protected. This little 3-by-4-inch immunization card contains important information, including the vaccine manufacturer and lot number, as well as where and when the shot was administered. You'll want to keep it handy for things like future events or traveling to different countries that may require vaccination. Fully vaccinated Americans will be allowed to travel to Europe this summer and can go outdoors without masks in small social settings.
It's not recommended that you laminate your card in case something needs to be updated later if booster shots are necessary. There was a surge in sales of vaccine card protectors from Amazon in early April when the vaccine became available to adults in every U.S. state. These are removable plastic sleeves you can seal your card in, which are functional but not very stylish. That's why many sellers are now creating unique protectors.

Love the print and that it's not bulky at all."

It features a half pocket for your passport and a transparent pocket for your vaccine card so it's easily visible. For a few extra dollars, you can have the front cover personalized with your name.
