As more people get their coronavirus vaccine, it will become more important to ensure you have proof that you’ve rolled up your sleeve. You can protect your vaccination card with free lamination from Staples and Office Depot / OfficeMax.
Everyone who gets the vaccine receives a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. The card may be your required passport over the summer, as you may need to show it to gain entry to many public places, events and/or businesses. The card may also be essential for any travel plans in the near future, domestic or international.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) advises all vaccine recipients to keep their card, which includes which COVID-19 vaccine was given, the date(s) it was received and where it was received.
In any case, you will definitely want to be sure you have the little card handy and that it’s properly protected, especially if it’s going to be pulled from your pocket, wallet or purse repeatedly in the coming months.
While you can laminate your card at home with a kit or possibly in your home office, it might be easier and more convenient to have it done by the office supply experts.
Office Depot / OfficeMax and Staples are offering to laminate vaccination record cards for FREE — no purchase necessary. Both lamination offers only apply to the official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card — no other documents qualify.
Through July 25, Office Depot and OfficeMax will get your card protected at no cost with this coupon. The offer is available at all locations nationwide. You can also provide coupon code 52516714 at the service counter.
With no expiration date (as of yet), Staples will also laminate your cards for FREE — just provide coupon code 81450 at the service counter.
Important: Unless you get the one-dose Johnson & Johnson, do not laminate your card until you have received both vaccinations.
The CDC recommends taking a picture of your vaccination card as a backup copy, in case yours gets lost.
In addition, even though you may be excited to get your final shot, it’s not wise to post your card on social media because of the personal information included.
