This is the perfect wallet for carrying your COVID vaccination card

Just as we thought the global pandemic and resulting lockdowns were nearly over, the COVID Delta variant threatens to thwart our best-laid plans. As officials struggle with how to navigate what may be next, at least one major city has begun requiring proof of vaccination for indoor activities.

New York City mayor Bill DeBlasio has introduced the “Key to NYC Pass”, a program wherein anyone wishing to visit a restaurant, gym, or performance (concert, art show, etc.) must provide proof of vaccination before being allowed indoors. Acknowledging “not everyone” will agree with (or like) the mandate, he added “It is time for people to see vaccinations as literally necessary to living a good, full and healthy life,” he said. “If you’re unvaccinated, unfortunately, you will not be able to participate in many things.”

Functionally, vaccination cards are a bit cumbersome to carry around. At 3×4-inches, the cards don’t fit in many wallets without being folded and possibly destroyed as a result. There are lanyards and clear plastic sheaths for displaying your card as a wearable, but we’re guessing most aren’t going to want to don that day-to-day.

So, what’s the happy medium? How can we carry vaccination cards without destroying them and not have to wear them around our necks?

Conceptualized in 2006, the Slimfold wallet was originally designed to be a lightweight option for those who didn’t want bulky leather wallets. Though it comes in several variations, the “Original” wallet remains the same. Designed to carry up to 11 cards and currency – including Euros – the Slimford Original has another interesting benefit: it’s perfect for carrying a vaccination card.

The Slimfold Original happens to have the perfect dimensions to fit your vaccination card as well as your other cards and cash. Simply slip your vaccination card in the currency pocket; a removable thin plastic liner provides structure to the wallet, so you never have to worry about your vaccination card being damaged.

Though New York City is the first major city to demand proof of vaccination, it’s likely not the only city that will do so. States may also follow suit. Guidelines can also be tricky to keep up with as the situation around COVID and the Delta variant change.

While we love the Original Soft Shell above, the real Original (made of Tyvek, the same material FedEx uses for its incredibly durable envelopes) is available for about half the price. The Soft Shell model is made of a “technical” fabric Slimfold describes as “originally created for motorcycle wear,” which was “subjected to 70mph crash tests using real pavement” during development.

The website explains, “Its strength is derived by blending super-strong synthetics together at ultra-high weave densities.”

The Slimfold Original wallet is a great choice for carrying your vaccination card without destroying it, but it’s just a great wallet on its own merit. And one day when this is all really behind us and we can travel again, you’ve got a great wallet that can hold all your Euros when traveling abroad.
