These plastic holders will keep your COVID-19 vaccination card safe

It could be your “ticket back to normalcy," after all.


Whether you want to hop on a cruise ship or get a free donut at Krispy Kreme, you’re going to need to flash your COVID-19 vaccination card to prove you’ve received it. To keep that valuable piece of paper protected, there are plenty of clear, plastic sleeves out there to keep your card intact, safe, and ready to get you free donuts.

The vaccination card itself is about 4 inches long by 3 inches wide. The types of protectors we researched are clear so that you won't have to worry taking it out of a covered holder to show. Plus, they’ll help prevent your card from getting folded or ripped. After all, it’s looking like it’ll be an important document in the near future.

The holders featured above were selected based on their high reviews and badges from Amazon deeming them a number-one new release, which indicates that other people are shopping for the product and chose to buy that particular one. Plus, they’re all super wallet-friendly and can be purchased in packs of three, five, 10, and more, so everyone in your family will be covered (both from the vaccine and with the holder).

If you find that you’re showing your COVID-19 vaccination proof quite a bit, you might consider also getting a lanyard strap to go with it. All of the sleeves we featured have holes for that very purpose. That vaccine card, as John Brownstein, Ph.D., an ABC News contributor and epidemiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital described it, just might be your “ticket back to normalcy.”
