Depending on where you live, you may need to flash your vax card if you want to clock into work, attend an outdoor festival or sit down for a meal. Many major cities — including Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco — are requiring people to show proof of their COVID-19 vaccine in the form of that little white card issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to enter indoor spaces such as restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and other businesses.
Some U.S. states are also offering digital records to streamline the verification process, and many inoculated Americans are opting to store a photo or a scanned version of their card on their smartphones as recommended by the CDC. (It’s worth noting that laminating your card isn’t recommended, as the plastic might prevent future updates.) And some vaxxed folks prefer the old-fashioned option: Keeping their paper cards in their wallets or pockets.
But many point out that those four-inch-by-three-inch cards are an inconvenient size for basic billfolds, and others prefer to tote their CDC document in something more stylish or easily portable. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best vaccine card holders for keeping your records safe and handy. From passport holders that make it easy to show your documents while traveling, to playful movie-inspired cases, see our top picks for the best vaccine card protectors.
