Atlanta (CNN)-The eligibility for vaccination in the United States is rapidly expanding, and the White Card from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also becoming more popular.
Although the plan to establish a standardized vaccination certificate is still being developed, many people still view their Covid-19 vaccination card as a potential social currency.
Companies such as Staples and Office Depot are offering free lamination to help ensure their safety.
It may be tempting to laminate your vaccine card as early as possible, but you should take some time and make sure you think about some things beforehand.
This is the knowledge you should know when laminating the vaccine card that Dreamco wants.
Double check your information
If you are going to get two doses of vaccine, make sure to receive and record both doses on the card before lamination.
Check all your information carefully, including your name, date of birth, and the date and location of the vaccine to ensure accuracy.
Make sure you have a backup
Before laminating the card, you should definitely create a backup of the card.
Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency doctor and professor of public health at George Washington University, told CNN that she recommends taking pictures of this card after every medication.
She said: “After taking the first picture, take another picture, and then take the second picture, just in case you lose your physical card.”
Wen said that she also recommends photocopying the card and placing it in the same location as other important documents (such as your birth certificate).
After that, if you want to laminate your card, Wen says “continue to use”.
Know what to do if the card is damaged or lost
There are concerns that the lamination process may damage the card, stain the ink or make it illegible.
However, even if your card is damaged during the lamination process, you can still choose.
If your card is damaged or lost, you will need to contact the vaccine supplier to obtain another one.
If you have trouble contacting the provider, you can visit the CDC directory of the State Department of Health’s Immunization Information System (IIS).
Although the CDC itself does not have vaccination record information, providers must report vaccination status to the IIS or registry in their state. Please contact the phone number or email address listed in your state to access your records and obtain a new card.
Proof is the most important-whether to stratify
Some people worry that if the Covid-19 vaccine booster needle is needed, laminating its vaccine cards together will cause trouble in the future.
Wen Jiabao still said not to worry.
She said: “If you do get a booster in the future, you can always get another card.” “I won’t let it act as a deterrent.”
In the final analysis, what trumps everything is evidence-stratified or non-stratified.
Wen Jiabao said: “If you also follow all the other steps above, there is no need to laminate.” “The key is to easily obtain a vaccination certificate.”
As long as you have a card, you can be in a good place. Remember not to share it on social media.
