The past year has seen a lot of unexpected new trends: sanitizer, masks, and now, the latest accessory that the pandemic has unwittingly introduced to the world has come in the form of a vaccine card holders. And since it’s sure to become an intrinsic part of all our lives, it’s important to find ones that that look just as good as they work.
Just like they did with masks, companies and artists are finding ways to make vaccine card holders stylish so they can be a welcomed addition as we all start venturing into the world again. Athletic events, festivals and concerts have already announced plans to require proof of vaccination for entry and a number of countries require a vaccine passport to travel across their borders. As we all know, vaccine cards are flimsy so having a reliable holder to keep them safe and clean as you carry it around is a necessity. But you also don’t want it to detract from your first vaxxed summer. You could be seeing people that you haven’t shown your face to in over a year: here are the best vaccine card holders we found that are both functional and in vogue.
