Vaccine cards = summer’s hottest accessory. We all know how easy it is to lose a piece of paper. Or rip it. Especially since many of the cards are slightly too big to fit in your standard wallet. So we set out to find the best — and the cutest — holders and lanyards to keep our VIP (very important paper) safe and sound. Cheers to science, and to your protected vaccine record.
