    So funny -- my husband just put away our laminator 10 minutes ago -- we did our own.

    I am not sure if getting your card laminated is a good idea. I am afraid that at some point they decide that a one-time or annual booster shot is needed. If you laminate your card it will mean more paperwork for you to get a new one.

    The lamination form is good until July 2021.

    We actually laminated a copy of our card, but I found this info online (google it):

    “Even though it’s a low profile, small piece of paper, it’s an extraordinarily high value for you as a person to be able to travel,” said Steve Swasey, the vice president of communications at Healthline, in an interview last month.

    Until there’s a universal verification tool, Swasey says he’ll laminate and wear a sticker he received after being vaccinated when he hits the road. Other travelers I’ve spoken to have said they plan to laminate their vaccination cards to prevent damage — and Staples will even do it for free.

    If you do lose or damage your card, don’t panic. All COVID-19 vaccination providers are required to report data within 72 hours in their state’s immunization system. That means there will likely be a back-up record of your vaccination status.

    The CDC recommends contacting the immunization information system (IIS) in your state to see if they have records (but not to contact the CDC since they do not keep a record of COVID-19 vaccines). You can also contact the place where you got your shot or your state’s health department. And, don’t forget, you have these options with all vaccines — not just the COVID-19 shots.

    Recently, a friend got her card wet before receiving a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and workers at the facility happily exchanged it with a new card. So, depending on where you are in the vaccination process, you may be able to easily get a new card, too.

    Staples is offering free lamination of Covid-19 vaccination cards this week. The offer ends April 3. You would just need to use the coupon code 81450.

    Regarding if lamination could damage the card:

    As for if lamination causes any possible damage to the card, Staples said it depends on how the card was printed.

    "If your card has stickers that were printed using a thermal printer, then yes, the heat used during the lamination process will turn the sticker black and ruin it," a statement from the company reads.

    To tell if the sticker is a thermal one, Staples said to gently scratch it with your fingernail. If the scratch turns black, the sticker is thermal, and you shouldn't laminate the original card.

    Instead, make a photocopy of your card and, laminate that one. You can keep your original one someplace safe.
